The parents of teenage sweethearts murdered in the Manchester Arena bombing atrocity have spoken of their loving bond, saying: "Now we are one family." Liam Curry, 19, and Chloe Rutherford, 17, were said to be 'inseparable' and their 'love story' was revealed by their families in a joint presentation delivered to the public inquiry into the 2017 terror attack.

A lasting legacy launched in their names is now supporting other youngsters - and a Pride of Britain award nomination has been revealed.
