The father of the youngest victim of the Manchester Arena bombing has said he is preparing to sue security services over failures to act on intelligence that could have prevented the attack.

Andrew Roussos, the father of Saffie Roussos who tragically died aged just eight, previously said MI5 have 'blood on their hands' after a public inquiry into the atrocity found the security service failed to follow up information that could have stopped bomber Salman Abedi.

Speaking on Times Radio this morning, Mr Roussos said MI5 have 'most of the blame' for the tragic attack in May 2017, where 22 people sadly lost their lived after Abedi detonated a bomb shortly after an Ariana Grande concert at the city centre venue.

Why won't they tell us why? Mr Roussos said: “It’s the only way to learn, everybody learns by hitting them hard in the pocket, I am sorry to say. “At 2017 we were at the highest alert and everybody was warned of an attack in this country and MI5 who their sole job, they are well-funded and well-equipped, had 22 pieces of information about Salman Abedi. “So if they would have learnt lessons they wouldn’t have allowed Abedi to walk into that arena.
