Manchester bomb police find 'significant' vehicle in Rusholme

03 June 2017

British police investigating the Manchester Arena attack have seized a auto they believe may be significant to the investigation.

Police investigating the Manchester suicide bombing evacuated an area of the city yesterday after finding a auto which they say "may be significant to the investigation".

The new arrest follows the evacuation Friday afternoon of an area in Rusholme after police identified a vehicle they said "may be significant to the investigation".

The property in Banff Road in the Rusholme area of the city was cordoned off on Wednesday afternoon.

Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson, head of the North West Counter Terrorism Unit, said: "This is potentially a significant development in the investigation".

Officers put in place a 100-metre cordon around a white Nissan Micra.

The latest development comes a day before an all-star benefit concert led by U.S. singer Ariana Grande, who was performing on the night 22 people were killed at the Manchester Arena.

Police said the Royal Manchester Infirmary remained open but people were evacuated from Ronald McDonald House, which provides accommodation for families of patients at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

But police are still trying to determine if Abedi had any bomb parts before leaving the country in April.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have asked anyone with information about the vehicle to come forward: "We are very interested in anything people can tell us about the movements of this auto, and who was in it, over the past months".

This is a handout photo taken from CCTV made available on Friday June 2, 2017 and issued on by the Greater Manchester Police of Salman Abedi, at an unknown location in Greater Manchester, England in the days just.

A further six people who were arrested since the attack have been released without charge.

The developments came Friday after police released new security camera images of Abedi before the attack, hoping to piece together his actions between May 18 and May 22.

Many of his movements and actions in the four days after his return to the United Kingdom from Libya leading up to the May 22 atrocity were also carried out alone but detectives have not ruled out that he was part of "a wider network".

Meanwhile Ariana Grande's arrived in the United Kingdom ahead of Sunday's benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester terror attack.
