Support services for those affected by devastating terrorist attack in Manchester

Julia Mulligan, the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, has today urged any North Yorkshire resident who has been affected by last night’s terrorist attack in Manchester to call the Supporting Victims service.

Julia said: “I’m devastated to hear about the horrific attack that targeted teenagers, children and their families in Manchester, it’s a shocking and senseless loss of life of people who were just out to enjoy themselves.

“I would like to convey my deepest sympathies to the victims and their families. If anyone has been caught up in the dreadful events in Manchester, please do get in touch with the Supporting Victims unit here in North Yorkshire.  The team is trained to help and we have support services available.”

Keith Taylor, team leader for Supporting Victims, said: “My thoughts are with all those affected by the horrific events that took place last night. We’re thinking about the families of those involved and are here to help. I would urge any North Yorkshire residents affected to please call us. We can offer both practical and emotional support.”
