Due to controversial scene in their 'People' video...

The 1975 have faced criticism from the mother of one of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack.

The band's new video 'People' is online now, and features a number of controversial scenes.

Now the mother of a victim of the Manchester Arena attack has criticised the video, explaining that she believes it "glamourises suicide bombers..."

Figen Murray's son Martyn Hett was one of 22 people who died in the attack, and she tweeted her disappointment at the band's actions:

The 1975 have not commented on the claims.
