On 22 October 2019 the Home Secretary announced an independent public inquiry into the Manchester Arena attack on 22 May 2017.
Sir John Saunders, having acted as the Coroner responsible for conducting the Manchester Arena Inquests, was also appointed to chair the Inquiry on 22 October 2019.
The Inquiry will investigate the deaths of the victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena attack and will have the same scope as the Inquests. The Inquiry’s Terms of Reference can be found here.
This purpose of this website is to provide information relating to the Inquiry and will be updated as its progresses. Where possible, evidence and transcripts of hearings will be made available on the website. News pages will be updated with hearing dates and once the Inquiry hearings begin in April 2020 the website will host evidence.
