All references in the footnotes relate to material which is available on the Inquiry website: www.manchesterarenainquiry.org.uk. The citation system used is Day/Page/Line in relation to transcripts of evidence. References starting “INQ” are to documents displayed in the course of the hearings or published on the website as evidence considered by the Inquiry. The evidence, as it was adduced in the course of the oral evidence hearings, is also available to be viewed on YouTube.
