Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has released a statement from the families of 2 of the victims of Manchester’s bombing on 22 May.
The families of both Chloe and Liam would like to thank everyone who has supported them during this very difficult time.
We want to give special thanks to GMP, our Northumbrian Police family liaison officers and The Hilton Hotel. They have shown nothing but kindness and resolve. To the nurses and British Red Cross, we also extend our gratitude for supporting us during our darkest hours.
The past two weeks have been a parent’s worst nightmare, as our children were taken from us much too soon.
Finally, after much heartache and sadness, we are in a position at last to bring our babies home where they belong.
We ask that in the days ahead the press show us the respect we deserve and the time to come to terms with the impact this horrendous crime has had on us as families.
We would at this point also like to reach out to those affected by the London Terror Attack.
Sending our love and condolences to those who have lost loved ones, our hearts are aching for your loss. May those injured have a speedy recovery.
