POLICE IN MANCHESTER have arrested an 18th person in connection with the Ariana Grande concert bombing in which 22 people were killed almost two weeks ago.

Officers arrested a 20-year-old man on Cheetham Hill Road on suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act late yesterday evening.

This morning officers investigating the attack at the Manchester Arena are executing a warrant at a house on Princess Road, Moss Side.

To date 18 people have been arrested in connection with the investigation, of which six people have been released without charge. A total of 12 men remain in custody for questioning.

Police released new CCTV images of suicide bomber Salman Abedi on Friday in a bid to gain more information from the public about his movements before he detonated the bomb.

Grande will play at a star-studded benefit concert, alongside acts including Katy Perry, Coldplay and Take That, in the city tonight.
