A father begged his teenage daughter to start breathing, as police desperately tried to save her life minutes after the Manchester Arena bombing, the public inquiry heard.

Michael Hurley was beside his daughter Megan, 15, pleading, 'Come on Megan, love,' as officers gave emergency first aid in the City Room foyer of the Arena.

The youngster was standing just three metres from the suicide bomber at the moment of detonation.

Her injuries were later deemed 'un-survivable', and she was one of the 22 murdered in the terror attack carried out by bomber Salman Abedi and his brother Hashem.

Megan had been at the concert with her brother, Bradley, who is six years older, when they were caught in the blast, at 10.31pm at the end of an Ariana Grande concert on May 22, 2017.

Bradley was seriously injured and not able to get up from the floor but he could see Megan did not appear to be breathing and knew he was 'helpless to try to save his sister', the inquiry heard.

Their parents, Michael and Joanne Hurley, from Halewood, Liverpool, were on their way to collect their children after the event when Mr Hurley called his son and he went straight to the City Room himself.

Megan’s eyes were closed and she was clearly injured and though there was no damage to her face she was not moving and was unresponsive.

Mr Hurley could not detect a pulse and called out to police to help.
