Police have arrested 18 people in connection with the investigation but six have since been released without charge.

A man has been arrested in connection with the May 22 bombing of Manchester Arena, which killed 22 people including seven children, making him the 17th person to be held in custody.

British police investigating last week's Manchester suicide bombing said on Friday they had evacuated an area in the city center after identifying a auto which could be "significant" to their inquiry.

Counter-terrorism police have said they believe Salman Abedi acted largely alone as he assembled the nail bomb, having initially feared the killer was helped by a network of accomplices.
