A teenager whose mother died in the Manchester Arena bombing says that if she hadn’t misread a text message, it’s likely she would have died as well.
Charlotte Fawell, 15, was exiting the Ariana Grande concert at the time of the blast, which took 22 lives and injured scores more. She had been following directions from her mum Wendy, but left through the wrong door.
She was only informed of her mother’s death by a detective after the incident. Charlotte “she was my best friend, we did everything together.”
Greater Manchester Police have released an image of bomber Salmen Abedi captured by CCTV on the night of the blast.
