Incident at the Manchester Arena

Tuesday 23rd May 2017 – 7.00am – Murray MacGregor.

Our thoughts are very much with our colleagues in the emergency services and those affected by the explosion at the Manchester Arena last night.

As part of a our well rehearsed contingency plans a number of ambulance resources were sent into the North West Ambulance Service area to provide support while NWAS were dealing with the incident.

These resources have now been stood down and returned to their normal operating areas.

We would like to thank the many staff who offered to stay late and work additional shifts.

The Manchester incident emergency phone number 0161 856 9400.
