“Hope must win” – Wythenshawe head teacher’s defiant message following family’s terror ordeal

MEAThe principal of a Wythenshawe academy school whose family were injured following  Monday night’s bomb attack at the Manchester Arena has spoken about their ordeal.

Manchester Enterprise Academy principal James Eldon praised NHS staff after his wife underwent surgery following the attack at the Ariana Grande concert which left 22 dead and 59 injured.

Mr Eldon also praised a taxi driver who drove his wife to hospital. Mrs Eldon was at the concert with their daughter.

The family’s ordeal comes just weeks after Mr Eldon himself was caught up in the Westminster attack. Mr Eldon was in the House of Commons when a man drove into tourists on Westminster Bridge before killing a police officer in March.
