Survivor of Manchester Arena terror attack backs plans to make venues safer

The UK government will hold public consultation on a new initiative that would require venue owners to improve security to keep people safe from terrorist attacks.

The “Protect Duty’ initiative is based on lessons learned from the Manchester Arena bombings and other attacks. It would require venue owners and operators to take reasonable measures — such as increasing physical security, planning for incident response plans and training staff — to prepare their spaces and staff for terrorism and to protect the public from attack.

Manchester Arena survivor Amelia Mae Thompson told Chris Davis-Smith of Planet Radio, “Preparation is really important, I’ll feel safer in future if more security measures are brought in.”
