A priest from Rugby has spoken about his experiences in Manchester in the aftermath of the bombing which claimed 22 lives there last week.
Liam Johnston, who serves as a chaplain with the British Transport Police, spent last week in the city assisting those who were affected by the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

“When there is a trauma like this it brings up things from people’s pasts so officers would talk about traumatic incidents that happened in the past that they are now reliving emotionally,” he told the BBC.
Twenty-two people were killed and a further 116 were injured in the blast.
