Manchester Arena inquiry hears 999 call from man trying to help victim of blast


A desperate 999 call from a member of the public treating a dying victim of the Manchester Arena bombing was played on the second day of the public inquiry into the attack. Ronald Blake was trying to help stricken John Atkinson, 28, who had been caught in the blast carried out by suicide bomber Salman Abedi in the City Rooms, the foyer of the arena. Mr Blake rang within seconds of the blast as he tried to comfort Mr Atkinson and alert the emergency services.
