'Yes we are being forgotten' says bomb survivor

Six months ago Manchester and the world was rocked after a bomb was detonated at a children's concert in the city. Twenty two people were killed in the terror attack and hundreds more injured.

Martin Hibbert and his daughter were leaving the Ariana Grande concert and found themselves just meters away from the bomber. The dad was left paralysed following the attack, he says after leaving hospital, he feels he 'is being forgotten' and without the 'We Love Manchester' charity fund he'd be struggling financially.

Martin's Xray

Martin recently moved to a house in Chorley with his wife that was wheelchair accessible, "I was house bound for 5 weeks," he told Granada as he waited for ramps to be fitted. "It's just wrong," he said.

Martin's daughter currently remains in hospital.
