Stoneman Douglas school principal vows to hug every pupil affected by the Parkland shooting

Every student affected by last week's tragic shooting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will receive a hug from their headmaster, he has vowed.

"I will hug each and every one of you as many times as you need and I will hold you as long as you need me to", Ty Thompson said in an emotional video to the school.

His comments came after 17 people were killed at the school in Parkland, Florida last week.
