It’s been confirmed today that an Altrincham PR manager was killed in the Manchester Arena bombing.

Martyn Hett, a 29-year-old from Stockport, has worked as digital manager for Rumpus PR, based on Woodlands Road, since 2013.

He had been missing since Monday’s attack after becoming separated from friend Stuart Aspinall towards the end of the Ariana Grande gig.

His partner, Russell Hayward, confirmed in a tweet this morning that the “wonderful iconic and beautiful” Martyn had died in the outrage, which has claimed 22 lives overall.

It’s now transpired that Martyn was this week due to embark on a two-month trip to the United States.

He has previously appeared on TV shows Come Dine With Me and Tattoo Fixers, and had been tweeting during the concert at the Manchester Arena.

His brother, Dan, also confirmed the news in a tweet this morning.
