PUBLIC-SECTOR unions praised the work of the emergency services yesterday after Monday night’s blast.
NHS union Unison lauded the public-sector workers involved.
Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said: “Their response was incredible.
“Many worked through the night to save lives or rushed into work to help when news broke of the attack. And they will continue to put Manchester back together in the days and weeks ahead.”
Fire Brigades Union general secretary Matt Wrack added: “Once again, our emergency services have been on the front line of responding to a terror attack.
“We pay tribute to our own firefighters and our colleagues in all emergency services who did everything possible to save lives and keep people safe.”
TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “Manchester is where the TUC was founded, and we send our solidarity and love to everyone there.
“And we should send our huge thanks to everyone working to help people affected today, especially our great emergency services.”
