The family of a 15 year old who died in the Manchester arena bombing have launched a charity in her memory.

The Megan Hurley Foundation aims to provide help and support to self-employed families if they lose a child.

Megan, a student at Halewood Academy on Merseyside, was among 22 children and adults who lost their lives in the terror attack last year.

The charity may also provide help and support to other good causes that will benefit children.

Parents Joanne and Michael and brother Bradley, who was badly injured in the incident, say they are very grateful for the support they continue to receive and hope to keep Megan and the foundation in the forefront of people's minds and hearts.

"Anyone who has set up a charity will know how much of a lengthy, difficult process it can be especially in these circumstances. We wanted to get this out there as quick as possible so that Megan’s name would live on through helping others. That is the type of person Megan was."
