Dan Hett Rejects Claims That Manchester Arena Victim Terror Attack Might Have Been Averted

A man who lost his brother in the Manchester Arena attack has said that “assigning blame is a mug’s game” after an official review into the terror attack revealed that it might have been averted. 

Dan Hett lost his 22-year-old brother Martyn when terrorists targeted an Ariana Grande concert on May 22. 

A report by David Anderson QC, released on Tuesday, established that bomber Salman Abedi was a former “subject of interest”, adding that it was “conceivable” the attack “might have been averted had the cards fallen differently”.
