A man who was arrested in connection with the Manchester Arena bombing has been released without charge.

The 21-year-old was detained last Wednesday. Six of the 16 people who've been arrested as part of the investigation have since been freed.

Meanwhile, tickets go on sale for a benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester bomb at 10am this morning. 

Ariana Grande, whose concert was attacked at the city's arena will headline the gig at Old Trafford cricket ground. She'll be joined by stars including Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Take That.

Some fans who were at last week's show believe it's too soon.

But Melvin Benn who's one of the organisers, disagrees.

"Life has to go on," he said. "We're very keen to demonstrate that life will go on. The reality is we are planning a safe concert and we're going to absolutely deliver a safe concert.

"Security is at the top of everybody's list."
