The Prime Minister has promised her full support to families in the North East whose relatives were killed in the Manchester terror attack.

In an interview with ITV News Tyne Tees, Theresa May admitted she has not met any of the families of those who died in the bombing in May.

ITV News Tyne Tees put the concerns of the family of Philip Tron, from Gateshead, who lost his life in the bombing to Mrs May.

Mr Tron was killed alongside his girlfriend's daughter, Courtney Boyle, as they waited in the foyer of the Manchester Arena.

June Tron says that since her son's death, she has tried to contact the Prime Minister's office to ask her to acknowledge the impact of the attack on the families.

Mrs May described the attack as a "terrible tragedy" and said she was trying to ensure support is available to all those affected by the attack.
