Hi there

Pretty new to family history but after several articles from the 1970ís of the MEN regarding my father, are the archives available anywhere online as all libraries are closed at the present time , I have searched on the British newspaper archive page but canít seem to find the paper after 1940 despite a huge amount of interest in the paper .

Any other avenues I can go down much appreciated thanks

Know exactly where your coming from ,I would doubt that the media will not publish or broadcast words from the majority of those poor families in case they say what they really feel about the type of people who commit these atrocities

Very sad day, but you know what? I wish the media would remember that 21 other innocents were murdered on that day, not just Martin Hett, just sayin'.  ???

The arena bombing was "forever etched in our minds", the Dean of Manchester said as he led a live-streamed memorial service to mark the third anniversary of the attack.

Twenty-two people were killed and hundreds injured in the suicide bombing at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.
Those watching the video stream were invited to light remembrance candles.

Rogers Govender led the prayers and read out the names of those who died, as hundreds watched the service online.
He said "that awful day" was more poignant this year as families could not be together "for comfort and support" due to coronavirus restrictions, but added "we stand with you in solidarity".
Another service will be streamed on Manchester Cathedral's Facebook page at 16:30 BST.
