Ed Ford, Chairman of Council for The National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs, said:

“On behalf of all young farmers across England and Wales, NFYFC offers its heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Nell Jones from Knutsford YFC in Cheshire who sadly lost her life in the attack at the Manchester Arena on Monday night.

“Our thoughts are also with the members of Knutsford YFC and Cheshire Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs who have been affected by this tragedy.

“While these atrocities are devastating and shocking – especially when it affects our own communities – we must all stand united against the hatred. It is at times like these that we can take comfort and strength from our nationwide community of Young Farmers’ Clubs. The work we all do to support our local communities will continue, the friendship we share with each other will continue and our commitment to developing rural young people who make a positive difference in the world will continue.”
