Manchester City Council to implement ‘Martyn’s Law’ in memory of Arena Attack victim Martyn Hett

The long fight of the mother of one of the victims of the 2017 Manchester terror attack has progressed — Martyn’s Law,  a law ensuring increased security at large venues, will be implemented by Manchester’s City Council. The council does not have legislative powers, but will implement safety strategies suggested by Martyn’s Law.

Martyn Hett, 22, and 21 others were killed by a terrorist bomb while attending a concert at the Manchester Arena.  His mother, Figen Murray,  has campaigned for better security checks to save lives since the bombing.

Murray hopes that the common sense principles of Martyn’s Law will indeed become law, reports Planet Radio UK.
