manchester Bomb: our story
It was almost a year ago that Britain suffered a terror attack that was in some ways worse than anything this country has seen in modern times. There have been atrocities in which more people have died, but none in which a target was chosen with such cruel relish as the children and families at the Ariana Grande concert where a suicide bomber wearing a device loaded with shrapnel claimed 22 victims – ten of them under the age of 20 – and injured hundreds more.
Among those sharing their painful memories of the terrible day is Louise
Murray (above), whose brother Martyn Hett was killed at the age of just 29. Manchester Terror Attack: In Their
Own Words (Channel 5, 10pm) features interviews with survivors of the attack and the families of those who died, plus we hear from members of the police who had the terrible task of carrying out the investigation in order to comprehend what had happened.
