Girl injured in Manchester attack returns home to Barra
Laura MacIntyre was at the Ariana Grande gig with friend Eilidh MacLeod 100 days ago.
A teenager who was severely injured in the Manchester terror attack 100 days ago has returned home to Barra in the Outer Hebrides.
Laura MacIntyre, 15, suffered "horrendous" injuries in the suicide bombing at the Ariana Grande concert in May.
She travelled to the Manchester Arena with her friend Eilidh MacLeod, who was among the 22 people killed.
Laura returned to her family home on Tuesday after the terror attack in May.
After initially being treated at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, she was moved to a hospital in Glasgow in July as her recovery continued.
She suffered serious hand and leg injuries in the blast.
Her parents, Michael and Nan MacIntyre, thanked the people of Manchester for the support they provided Laura.
Speaking in July, they said: "The kindness and care started from the first moments after the bombing when a young travel safe officer held Laura's hand and comforted her for an hour while she waited for treatment.
"We believe he helped save Laura's life that night and he will always be a hero to our family.
"Since then, he has been to visit Laura in hospital and it was a privilege to meet him and thank him in person."
Eilidh and Laura, both pupils at Castlebay Community School, were reported missing after they failed to get in touch with family following the explosion on May 22.
It was later confirmed Eilidh was among the dead while Laura was found in hospital.
On June 5, around 1000 mourners gathered in Barra as Eilidh's body was returned to the island.
Her coffin was flown in to the island's beach, which is also used as an airstrip, and carried across the sand in a piper-led procession.
In a statement released on a Barra Community Facebook page her parents Michael and Nan MacIntyre said: "We are delighted that Laura has been able to return home to Barra.
"She continues to amaze us every day with her strength and bravery and we've looked forward to this day for a long time.
"We'd like to thank everyone who has helped Laura and our family get here, from the first respondents to the doctors and nurses in Manchester and Glasgow, and Ronald McDonald charity who supported us while we were away.
"We now want to return to as much of a normal life as possible and would appreciate time and privacy to focus on Laura's long-term recovery."
Manchester: 100 Days After The Attack will air on Tuesday on STV at 9pm.
