A rose for Saffie: youngest Manchester Arena attack victim remembered with new flower

A rose has been created to remember the youngest victim of the Manchester Arena terror attack.

Saffie Roussos from Leyland in Lancashire was just 8 years old when she was killed in the atrocity outside an Ariana Grande concert in May last year.

Her middle name was rose, and her family said they wanted to create something as beautiful as she was.

The Saffie rose was unveiled at the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park.
