Manchester Arena attack survivors win case against conspiracy theorist

Two survivors of the Manchester Arena attack have won their bid to sue a writer who said it was faked.

Richard Hall’s claim that no-one died in the 2017 attack, which killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert, was “preposterous”, a judge said.

Judge Richard Davison ruled in favour of Martin and Eve Hibbert, who sued Mr Hall after he said they were not there.
