Kerslake report raises questions, but emergency services deserve our support

The Kerslake report into last May's devastating Manchester Arena attack raises many questions about the response of our emergency services. 

In particular, people are quite rightly asking why it took Fire and Rescue services two hours to be given the order to enter the arena.

I support our emergency services as they try to learn from any mistakes made, and I'm grateful to Mayor Andy Burnham for commissioning this report.

Yesterday I joined fellow Labour MPs from across Greater Manchester in questioning the government on the findings of the report, and I raised the point made by the Fire Brigades Union that Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue is the only emergency service in Manchester which doesn't have its own dedicated service control room. Click here to watch my question and the full debate
