'We're standing together in unity'

We both look towards the future - we don't see any colour and don't see any creed - that way, we may be able to come up with a more amiable situation

– Renee on her friendship with Sadiq

After the horrifying terror attack on Monday night, many people have come out to show their respects. But it's the image of 93-year-old Renee Black and her friend Sadiq Patel holding each other whilst reading the tributes and messages of support left at Albert Square in Manchester that has captured the unity of the United Kingdom.

One a Muslim, the other a Jew, Renee and Sadiq join us live from their hometown of Blackburn to tell us how we all need to stand together, despite our religious beliefs.

The homeless hero of Manchester

People do look at homeless people and tarnish us all with the same brush and think that we haven’t got a heart. I saw people stepping over children that night, stepping over them to get away and leaving children, and to me that wasn’t the right thing to be done

– Manchester’s homeless hero Stephen Jones

Homeless and forced to beg on the streets outside of Manchester Arena, Stephen Jones was one of the first to help those injured by the bomb blast on Monday night.

He joins us to give his harrowing account of the moment he rushed to help the severely wounded children.

And Stephen's message of love, not hate is spreading. His heroic actions have caught the attention of West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan and his son Dave Sullivan Junior, and Dave joins us in the studio to talk about how they managed to track Stephen down in the hope of rewarding him for his bravery.
