AN inquest has concluded into the death of Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi who died from blast injuries and took 22 innocent people - including children - with him.

Hundreds more were left with physical and psychological injuries in the blast which occurred on May 22, 2017.

The tragedy touched every part of the UK, including the Bradford district, where many people had travelled from to watch the concert.

Otley mum-of-two Wendy Fawell, 50, was killed in the blast and her friend Caroline Davis Osborne suffered shrapnel wounds and a dislocated shoulder.

Queensbury teenager Eve Senior, 15, was left with a catalogue of injuries, including 18 shrapnel wounds and burns to her leg, in the deadly attack.

Sir John Saunders, chairman of the public inquiry into the terror attack, acting as a coroner, released details of his ruling on Wednesday.

Recording the circumstances of how Abedi died, Sir John said: “The deceased died near to the entrance doors to the Manchester Arena, when he detonated an explosive device that he had made with his brother and carried into the City Room in a backpack as part of a planned terror attack.

“In detonating the device the deceased murdered 22 innocent victims and injured many others.”
