Manchester Arena attack: ‘It feels like we’re stuck in 2017’

The parents of Saffie Roussos, the youngest of the 22 people killed in the Manchester Arena attack, have spoken of their struggle two years on.

Saffie was eight years old.

Her mother Lisa, who was badly injured in the bombing, and father Andrew have also criticised the government compensation scheme, through which they were each offered £5,500.

“It’s a complete insult,” Mrs Roussos told the BBC’s Judith Moritz, speaking in her first broadcast interview.

Mrs Roussos is taking part in the Great Manchester Run, planning to walk the 10K route, alongside members of the medical team who have looked after her.

She is taking part to support a charity she launched with her husband that will help victims of terrorism.
