Moving tribute to Martyn as Manchester Pride gets under way

One of the biggest parties in the region is under way. Manchester Pride will draw tens of thousands of people to the city over the Bank Holiday. Among the dozens of floats are one from Coronation Street. It features a tribute to Martyn Hett, the soap superfan who was among the 22 people who died in the arena bombing in May.
