WATCH: Jason Manford officially opens memorial benches

Jason Manford was in Royton Park today to attend the opening of memorial benches for Alison Howe and Lisa Lees.

Alison and Lisa were two victims of the Manchester Arena bomb attack in May.

They had both travelled to the arena to pick up their children from the Ariana Grande concert.

The benches are located in Royton Park where the event took place, crowds gathered to celebrate Alison and Lisa's lives and there were musical performances, including one from Jason Manford himself.
