Police Chief Blasts BBC over ‘Wholly Inaccurate’ Manchester Terror Attack Documentary
Manchester’s police chief has described a BBC documentary aired on the anniversary of the city’s arena terror attack as “entirely misleading” and “wholly inaccurate”.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) Chief Constable Ian Hopkins hit out at the broadcaster in a two-page open letter on Wednesday.
He said he was left “saddened” by the impact Manchester: The Night Of The Bomb had on families and survivors a year on from the suicide bombing, which left 22 people dead.
The senior police officer criticised the use of “explicit”footage from the night of the attack on May 22 last year, claiming some families were left asking “is this my loved one on the floor?”
Mr Hopkins said he wrote the letter to explain why his force did not take part in the programme and correct its “wholly inaccurate reporting”.
He denied suggestions he inferred from the documentary that GMP officers and staff were held back from the arena.
