Video: Father of terror victim condemns footballer's suicide bomber fancy dress costume

The father of a man from Oldham killed in the 7/7 bombings has condemned a Manchester United player who appeared as a suicide bomber at a fancy dress party.

The England international Chris Smalling has issued a public apology after a photo emerged of him wearing the costume at a private party in his home.

But Graham Foulkes whose son David died in the London terrorist attacks says it's one of the most offensive things he has ever seen and the footballer should have thought about the pain it would cause people.
