British police investigating the Manchester concert bombing have arrested a 24 year old man.

He was held last night in the Rusholme area on suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act.

It means 11 men are now in custody for questioning and six people have been released without charge.


Yesterday, Manchester police said they had found a car they believe is "significant" to their investigation. 

Officers set up a 100m cordon around the vehicle on Devell Court, not far from south Manchester's Banff Road, where police searched a house on Wednesday.
