22 October Hearing adjourned

The Manchester Arena Inquiry will adjourn the hearing tomorrow as a precaution following three confirmed and three suspected cases of Covid-19 connected to staff working at the Manchester Magistrates Court in the past seven days. The cases are not directly connected to the Manchester Arena Inquiry.

It is hoped the hearings will resume on Monday, subject to advice that it is safe to continue. The safety of everyone attending the Manchester Arena Inquiry is our priority.
