Calls for ‘Martyn’s law’ security review at entertainment venues | ITV News

The Government should launch a review into security at major venues following the Manchester Arena attack, Andy Burnham has said in a progress report looking at the response to the incident.

The Mayor of Greater Manchester supported calls from victims’ families to see security enhances as he published the update, which followed a report by former head of the Civil Service Lord Bob Kerslake that assessed the emergency response to the 2017 attack.

Twenty-two people died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi, 22, detonated a device in the foyer of the arena at the end of an Ariana Grande concert on May 22 2017.
