The Kerslake report has revealed how many families had completely different experiences of the bomb and its aftermath.

The investigation indicated that some people praised the care they were given in identifying their relatives, others saying they weren't given enough time to say goodbye.

Some people welcomed police family liaison officers while others said they weren't with them long enough or were too intrusive.

The mother of Martyn Hett says that she does feel that her voice has been heard. Figen Murray says that the report is sympathetic, that she has been listened to, and that we must all take steps to be better prepared for future attacks.
