A Manchester bomb survivor takes in the daughter of her best friend, who died in the attack and promised to ‘love her like her own’.

Caroline Davies and Wendy Fawell were at Manchester Arena to pick their children who were among thousands coming out of the venue after watching Ariana Grande when Salman Abedi blew himself up, killing 22.

Unfortunately, Wendy Fawell lost her life, leaving her daughter Charlotte, 15, without a mother.

Caroline Davies said losing Wendy was more like losing a sister than a friend, and is firm to ‘not let hate win’ and has promised to care for Charlotte as if she were her own child.

Caroline, 39, told the Sunday Mirror: ‘I’ll never replace Wendy but I will always be there for her.

‘I’d do ­anything for her and I’ll love her like she is my own. I’ve been like a second mum to Charlotte anyway.

‘I have said she can live here if she wants to. There is always room for her here.’

And as fate had it, Wendy walked into the past of the atrocious terrorist.

Charlotte is with the Davies family in Otley, West Yorkshire, and had to go through the heartbreaking task of identifying her mother’s body.

She told the paper: ‘Identifying mum’s body hit me really hard. That’s when I realised she wasn’t coming home.

‘Even when I was told she’d gone I guess I still hoped there had been a mistake. But seeing her body changed that.’
