Always in our hearts 22.05.17: Two years on

At 10.31pm tonight, bells will ring out across Manchester city centre to mark the second anniversary of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack that killed 22 people and injured more than 50 concertgoers.

Jennifer Williams of the Manchester Evening News reports on this year’s tributes.

She also mentions work done by those affected by the attacks, including Lisa Roussos, the mother of the bombing’s youngest victim, Saffie-Rose Roussos, who was 8 when she was killed. Lisa just completed the Manchester 10-K to raise money for a new charity that will support terror victims. Roussos ran despite having to relearn how to walk due to her injuries.

Figen Murray, whose son, Martyn Hett, was killed in the attack, is campaigning for mandatory bag searches and concerts and events to prevent future attacks.
