McCann went to see Arthur just days after he was convicted and told him:
‘You have ruined our lives. This is what you have done. And this is what you are missing out on.’
Fearne has now said to Sunday People:
‘I went to see Arthur and I took Sunday with me. This was because I am very angry about what has happened and I needed to communicate that and wanted to hear what Arthur had to say.
‘I strongly feel for the innocent people hurt that night and I in no way condone violence as I have already made clear. It was a difficult decision to take Sunday into that environment but I felt I needed to confront him about a number of things, which I have now done.’
