Tameside Council Executive Leader, Cllr Kieran Quinn, statement on suspected terrorist incident in Manchester

Date Released - 23/05/2017

The suspected terrorist incident at Manchester Arena is a truly shocking and horrific attack on innocent people.

Our thoughts are with all the victims and their families.  The community of Greater Manchester stands shoulder to shoulder with them at their time of grief and distress.

It is in these horrific times where we also see the true kindness of human nature, of people coming together and supporting each other. Manchester has already previously shown, along with London and other great cities that you can come through these atrocities stronger. We will do the same again.

I also want to pay tribute to the emergency services. As they always do, they have shown they are the very best of us. At such terrible and challenging times like this we always know they are putting others first and themselves last.
