Sickening CCTV footage has emerged of the ‘homeless hero’ of the Manchester Arena bombing taking photos of the bloody aftermath as victims lay dying on the ground.
Chris Parker, 33, previously said that he rushed into the concert hall to help in the minutes after the May 22 bomb.
But CCTV footage, shown in his trial at Manchester Crown Court, shows him holding his phone while passing bloody scenes and even stealing from the wounded.
One of the images found on Parker’s mobile phone is understood to have been used in international media coverage although it has not been officially confirmed exactly how the image ended up there.
The Manchester Evening News has learnt that a series of graphic images were recovered from Parker’s phone following his arrest.
