Hayley James Chart. PR MCIPR, CIPR North West Chair
Following the terrible events that took place in Manchester on Monday evening, and on behalf of the CIPR North West, I would like to send my thoughts and condolences to all those affected by this incident.

The professionalism of everyone involved in the emergency response is critical to keeping people safe and informed. I know many of our colleagues across the PR community will be supporting their clients and organisations through their major incident plans and the wider implications of this incident.

We want to thank the emergency services and everyone who works to support them.
