Manchester Arena Inquiry: Bomb response shameful, says victim's dad, by Judith Moritz, BBC North of England correspondent is a lead headline on the BBC News website this evening.
As ever, the piece reports everything except the main point: the radical Islamic terrorism-related nature of the atrocity. 

That doesn't merit a single mention, even in passing.
The language is, as ever, carefully chosen. It's a 'Manchester Arena Inquiry' and a 'Bomb response' and and 'attack' and a '2017 bombing', and the Islamist terrorist Salman Abedi is merely a 'bomber'.
