West Ham United owner’s son to house homeless hero following Manchester attack

The son of West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has revealed that he and his father want to rent a property for a homeless man who helped victims in the aftermath of the devastating terror attack in Manchester on Monday night.

Twenty-two people were killed and a further 59 taken to hospital with injuries after a man detonated an explosive at the Manchester Arena at 10.33pm.

The attack, which also resulted in the death of the perpetrator, occurred shortly after American popstar Ariana Grande completed her set in front of a 21,000-strong crowd, the majority of which were young people.

The identities of those that tragically perished are slowly being revealed, with the youngest so far just eight years of age.

Alongside the devastation there have been stories of heroics, one of which has caught the attention of many, including West Ham’s owners.

A homeless man known as Steve was filmed by ITV explaining that he helped tend to the victims after witnessing the carnage while trying to sleep close to the venue.

David Sullivan Jr revealed in a series of tweets that he and his father want to help Steve get his life back on track as a reward for his selfless act.

After using Twitter and contacts at ITV, the Sullivans were able to track Steve down.
