Conspiracy theorists track down terror attack victims at homes and workplaces – BBC News

Conspiracy theorists, who claim UK terror attacks have been staged, are tracking down survivors to their homes and workplaces to see if they are lying about their injuries, a BBC investigation has found.

Martin Hibbert, who was paralysed from the waist down when he and his daughter Eve were caught in the 2017 Manchester Arena blast, is preparing to take libel action against Richard D Hall, a conspiracy theorist based in Wales.

Mr Hall documented his attempts to check whether their injuries were a result of the arena attack, including setting up a camera outside of their home. He also targeted another Manchester Arena survivor, Lisa Bridgett, who lost a finger during the attack.

Mr Hall told the BBC it is wrong about how he operates. He said he didn’t put a camera outside the home of Eve Hibbert, but he admitted to leaving “a camera rolling” in his van, “parked in a public place”.

He said his door-to-door inquiries were polite and he can’t be held responsible for people sending abuse online.
