The mother of one of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack is launching a campaign for better anti-terrorism protection at large venues. Figen Murray's son, Martyn Hett, was among 22 people murdered by a suicide bomber at the arena two years ago. She's calling for a new law to oblige big venues and public spaces to put in place basic security plans and procedures.
The campaign is being backed by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and a former senior police officer, retired Chief Superintendent Nick Aldworth. He has written a report setting out the core components of 'Martyn's Law'. It would include a requirement that spaces and places to which the public have access: - engage with freely available counter-terrorism advice and training - conduct vulnerability assessments of their operating places and spaces - mitigate the risks created by the vulnerabilities - put in place a counter-terrorism plan
Figen Murry came into ITV Granada Reports to speak to presenter Tony Morris.
