Detectives have made “immense” progress in the investigation into the Manchester bombing and are confident they have arrested some “key players”, Britain’s top counter-terror officer has said.Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said police have made “significant” arrests and “finds” and have got hold of a “large part of the network” being sought over the atrocity.Mr Rowley said: “They are very significant, these arrests.”We are very happy we’ve got our hands around some of the key players that we are concerned about but there’s still a little bit more to do.” A relative of the 22-year-old said he had felt increasing frustration at his treatment in the UK, heightened after a friend was fatally knifed in what he perceived to be a religious hate crime.She added that the British-born bomber began referring to others in the country as “infidels” who were “unjust to Arabs”.Libyan authorities, who are questioning Abedi’s parents and siblings, claimed he made a final phone call to his mother on the eve of the attack, in which he said: “Forgive me.”Music fans were targeted at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in the worst terrorist attack on British soil since the July 7 bombing in London in 2005.As Abedi’s route to mass murder continued to be probed:Downing Street announced the Government’s emergency Cobra committee will meet in Whitehall on Friday morning to discuss the latest developments, chaired by the Home Secretary.Officers also carried out searches at properties in Manchester, Wigan and Nuneaton. A bomb disposal unit returned to the Wigan address on Thursday night so experts could examine “potentially suspicious items”.British investigative efforts remained focused on smashing the potential terror ring which may have assisted Abedi, despite the belief of Libyan authorities that he acted alone.Twenty-three people remained in critical care across eight hospitals. They included five children at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.British Transport Police announced that specialist firearms officers are to patrol on trains nationwide for the first time.NHS England warned health organisations to “ensure care is in place should it be needed” as Britain remained on high alert in the run-up to the bank holiday weekend.A man and a woman arrested as part of the probe were released without charge.At the Nato summit in Brussels, Theresa May confronted Donald Trump with her concerns about security lapses which allowed crucial evidence to be handed to US journalists by his officials.He vowed to investigate, calling the leaks “deeply troubling” and warning the sources of the security lapse could be prosecuted. In St Ann’s Square, boxer Khan said: “I just wanted to come here and show my respects.”Obviously it’s a very sad time for Manchester.

Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the fallout for the Manchester Arena bombing.We’ve been hearing overnight that counter-terror police have carried out new raids in connection with the attack, searching addresses in Manchester and Merseyside.One man was arrested in the Moss Side area of Manchester in the early hours of Friday morning and detectives searched a property in St Helens.Eight men are in custody in connection with Monday’s atrocity, with police and security agencies working at pace amid fears of further attacks. Meanwhile, with the General Election campaign due to resume on Friday, Jeremy Corbyn has signalled his intention to bring the issue of terrorism into the political arena.The Labour leader is expected to make a veiled attack on the Conservatives for underfunding the police service at a time of heightened threat, while linking Britain’s overseas military campaigns with terrorism at home.On Thursday, UK police resumed “working closely” with US authorities on the probe after a tense showdown between the allies over leaked intelligence.With Britain on critical alert, a huge operation is under way to dismantle a suspected “network” linked to suicide Abedi, who killed 22 people – seven of them under 18. 5:14PM’A lot of the risk contained, but still some uncertainty’ Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley discloses that police have reviewed security at more than 1,300 events around the country ahead of the bank holiday weekend.But he issued a message of reassurance to the public.”Go out as you planned. Enjoy yourselves and be reassured by the greater policing presence you will see.”We can’t let the terrorists win by dissuading us from going about our normal business.” Speaking after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, Home Secretary Amber Rudd disclosed that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has assessed that the terror threat level should remain at critical while the “live” police operation continues.The rating was raised to critical, the highest level, for the first time in a decade in the wake of the Manchester outrage.

An Islamist jihadist then stabbed a police officer and his wife in a Paris suburb in front of their son. The killer explicitly claimed in a live broadcast of the murder that he was responding to Adnani’s call.Later that month, three Isil suicide bombers opened fire then blew themselves up at Istanbul’s main airport, killing 45 and wounding more than 250.The final global body count after the month-long rampage was 421 dead and 729 wounded.Hitting multiple targets in many different countries is designed to send the message that no person on earth is safe or can be protected from terrorism.

Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.”Last year, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, the late Isil spokesman, issued a call to arms to followers to carry out lone wolf attacks during the holy month. It was the bloodiest Ramadan month on record.Isil took credit for a lone jihadist gunman, an Afghan American who perpetrated America’s deadliest mass shooting in history and worst terrorism on US soil since 9/11 during early morning hours of June 12 at an Orlando gay nightclub, killing 49 and wounding 53.

There is currently no specific threat to Merseyside.” Superintendent Louise Harrison said:”I understand that this kind of activity can cause concern for people living in nearby communities and would like to thank them for their understanding and patience. “As a result of today’s operation, Merseyside Police is working very closely with community groups, community leaders, partner agencies and individuals to make sure concerns are addressed and that we provide the best possible service to local people. “Over the coming days and weeks we will be continuing to work with our local communities to address any concerns they may have. We always need the public’s help to defeat terrorism by being extra vigilant and letting us know of any suspicious behaviour or activity.”“Terrorists want to create discord in our communities, but Merseyside has a long history of our communities living and working together. This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to divide us. “Public safety is the paramount concern for the police and will continue to be our top priority and we have a duty to act and protect the public. We cannot be complacent and cannot take chances in situations such as this and police and the security services must act on information received.” The developments followed a fraught day in which Greater Manchester Police severed intelligence-sharing ties with the US due to evidence being repeatedly passed to journalists without permission.”While we do not usually comment on information-sharing arrangements with international law enforcement organisations, we want to emphasise that, having received fresh assurances, we are now working closely with our key partners around the world including all those in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance,” Mr Rowley said.Abedi, who was known to security services for his radical views, was said to have been in close contact with family members moments before slaughtering concert-goers on Monday.

A former independent terror watchdog has said it was a “grave mistake” to abolish control orders to monitor terrorism suspects.Lord Carlile said the sweeping powers “may have saved dozens of lives” between 2005 and 2011.The independent peer and top QC also urged Theresa May to use their replacements “to their full effect now”, with just a handful of people currently subject to terrorism prevention and investigation measures (TPIMs).Control orders restricted the freedom of terrorism suspects and could be used to force people to move or restrict their use of phones and computers.But they were abolished by the coalition government in 2012 amid concerns over their impact on civil liberties. Lord Carlile told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:”In my view control orders worked very well in the period between 2005 and 2011. Although they were criticised for breaching civil liberties, in fact they were upheld by the courts, every control order was subject to automatic review by senior judges.”Fifty-three people were placed on control orders, 23 of them with relocation requirements and restrictions on their use of the internet and so on.”I believe that may have saved dozens of lives and my view is that it was a grave mistake by the coalition government to remove control orders and to produce something more dilute. I do wish at least that TPIMs would be used to their full effect now.”TPIMs place restrictions on those suspected of being involved in terrorism, but where there is not enough evidence to charge or deport them.Just seven people are subject to TPIMs at the moment, Lord Carlile said, adding that they were “better than nothing”.Lord Carlile was previously a Liberal Democrat peer but quit the party given its stance on security issues.

The focus is the safety and security of fans. “Anyone coming to the FA Cup Final or the other play off matches over the weekend will see an increase in police numbers in and around the stadium.“This will include extra armed officers on foot patrol around the environs of the Stadium, and the deployment of police armoured vehicles to support road closures.“At Twickenham rugby fans will see more armed officers on foot around the stadium.“If you have a ticket for any of the matches please help us out. Arrive earlier as there will be additional security and entry searches which may take a bit longer than fans are used to.“Our operations will include a range of highly visible but also covert and discrete tactics and this will run far beyond the final whistle and away from specific stadia. This will also apply right throughout the transport network.” Assistant Commissioner Rowley outlined a number of strands of the investigation into the attack:Finances – Officers are mounting a large-scale financial investigation, with Mr Rowley saying: “We are interested in equipment people have bought bearing in mind a bomb was constructed.” Communications – Police are looking back at communications and working closely with technology firms. Exhibits – Investigators have seized large volumes of material during searches of a number of properties and expect to amass hundreds of electronic devices.CCTV – Police are trawling through footage on local cameras to establish movements and patterns of activity in the lead up to the attack. Witnesses – Officers are working to “triage” hundreds of statements from those caught up in the bombing. International inquiries – Detectives are probing links to Libya as well as liaising with counterparts across Europe and elsewhere. Andrew Neil’s done it again.

NHS England have given an update on the condition of those injured in the Manchester attack.A total of 66 people are now being treated across eight hospitals, including 23 patients in critical care, after Monday’s attack. 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.” 10:18AMKatie Hopkins to leave LBC after calling for ‘final solution’ over Manchester attack 8:13AMWhat do we know about the bomb used in the Manchester attack Scene of the Pulse nightclub attack in OrlandoCredit:Phelan M.

The following day he visited the Arndale shopping centre in Manchester, where he was caught on CCTV buying a Karrimor rucksack.It is believed he then spent the weekend putting together the main components of the device, including the detonator.On Monday he then travelled the three miles from his home in Elsmore Road in the Fallowfield district to a rented apartment in Granby Row on the edge of Manchester’s Gay Village.The building was raided by special forces at lunchtime on Wednesdayand specialist forensics teams and bomb squad operatives were still at the building on Thursday.Sources believe Abedi may have used the £75 a night apartment to put all the components of the device together, before heading off late on Monday evening to make his way to the Manchester Arena where he killed 22 people.The use of two addresses to assemble the device was a tactic used by the 7/7 bombers who also spent months learning how to build a bomb at a training camp in Pakistan.Former Metropolitan Police officer, David Videcette, who helped investigate the tube bombings said it was likely Abedi had spent many months abroad practising how to assemble a device before returning to the UK.He said: “This is not something you can just put together by reading a book or watching a YouTube video. He will have spent time at a camp somewhere, possibly in Libya, being shown how to do it. “But once you have the skills and the materials, assembling the device itself can be done fairly quickly.”Click here for more.
