Terror attack survivors demand more support
More than 70 terror attack survivors have demanded that all political parties agree a ‘charter’ protecting their well-being after the General Election.
Including survivors of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and attacks in London, the group says all venues must set up anti-terror security plans, and laments that ‘we are sick of the promises [made by politicians] that never materialise’. Therefore, the group, which includes Brendan Cox, whose wife the Labour MP Jo Cox was killed in 2016, argues that ministers should implement a new 'Survivors' Charter' that would guarantee basic rights and services for survivors.
Concerning venue security, the group urges MPs to back Martyn's Law, compelling all owners of events spaces to have in place a ‘basic security plan’.
