Photo of armed policeman blowing a kiss to ladies in Manchester will melt your heart


A photo taken during a vigil in Manchester city centre has captured the spirit of city in the face of extreme challenges. 

The image showing a heavily armed policeman blowing a kiss to two ladies offering free hugs, has gone viral on social media. 

Natalie Thornley took the photo of the officer — who was one of the many being deployed in the aftermath of the bombing which killed 22 people. 

“Probably won’t capture a moment like this again,” Thornley said in an accompanying Facebook post. “Managed to get a photograph of the moment a heavily armed policeman blew a kiss to 2 ladies offering out free hugs. Really shows the spirit people in Manchester maintained tonight and the love that has spread throughout the city. Stronger together, love not hate :)”

The same love definitely featured in the comments: 

There is certainly something really compelling about the image. The tall, slender policeman, his theatrical gesture, the arch of his hands and the ladies’ hands, the #WeStandTogether banner, the Manchester bee — and the choice of black and white adds to the scene. 

Earlier, this boy Daniel was also offering free hugs in Albert Square, in the heart of Manchester. 

Love, not hate.
