Manchester attack latest: Fears Salman Abedi made second bomb as police launch new raids

26 May

In the years leading up to Monday’s attack, it was said Abedi was known to security services, but his risk to the public remained “subject to review” and MI5 considered him a “former subject of interest”, a Whitehall source said.

Police hunting the “network” behind his attack said they had made “significant” arrests and seized “very important” items in raids.

Emergency services on the night and aftermath of the Manchester attack were criticised by the widower of one victim, who accused them of leaving families in the dark.

Steve Howe, whose wife Alison, 45, died as she was waiting to collect their daughter from the concert, told Channel 4 News: “I gave them all the details, all the information from security in the arena, no-one has rang us… I was so frustrated.”
