A GIRL who survived the Manchester Arena terror attack was taken to her primary school prom in a luxury electric car.

Lexi-Paige Garnett, 11, could not believe it when she was given a designer dress, a new hairstyle and make-up, as well as a ride in a Tesla car, to see off her end of school celebrations in style.

Her mum, Emma Sharples, from Pike Hill in Burnley, said her step dad, Lee Smith, wanted to surprise her following a difficult two years for their daughter.

Lexi-Paige was unhurt in the bomb attack, at the Ariana Grande concert in 2017, but has psychological scars.

Ms Sharples, 30, said it affected her daughter who still says little about what happened.

She said: “She witnessed a lot, people running around, screaming, the loud bangs, it was a lot on her.

“She’s also had a tough time at school as well for one thing and another.

“Her stepdad wanted to do something special to put a smile back on her face after the past two years.”

Twenty-two people died and 139 were wounded when the bomb exploded inside the Manchester Arena.

More than half those affected were children.

The suicide bomber behind the attacks, Salman Abedi, was born in Manchester in 1994 and had Libyan parents.

Lexi-Paige, wearing her stylish Jane Norman dress, was accompanied by her best friend, Destiny Mannan, in the Tesla which took them to their primary school prom at Brunshaw Primary School in Morse Street.

Ms Sharples said her daughter’s make-up and hair was done by Beauty Zone in Brownside Road, Burnley.

She said: “Lexi couldn’t believe it and she was really happy.

“She had a great time and really enjoyed the leavers party.

“The car we managed to get through a friend and they managed to get the licence plate personalised, which was a really nice touch.

“She will be starting Unity College comprehensive school, in Burnley, in September.”
