Manchester Arena inquiry told victim might have survived with quicker response

North of England Correspondent

The inquiry into the Manchester Arena atrocity has heard claims that one of those killed in the bombing might have survived – if there had been a more rapid response by the emergency services.

Problems with communication and confusion meant it took more than an hour to get some of the injured to ambulances. The inquiry also heard that the bomber Salman Abedi had been visiting a convicted terrorist in prison in the months before the attack.
