The story is a horrifying one, with concert-goers frantically fleeing the arena as news of the explosion spread around the world. In the midst of the confusion, however, a bit of kindness shone through: taxi drivers in Manchester turned off their fare machines and took concert-goers wherever they needed to go free of charge.
