British police are now holding eight people in connection with the Manchester bombing after an arrest in the early hours of the moring in the city’s Moss Side district.

A reported 22 people are registered residents of the four-room house, and police are also searching a nearby barber’s shop. Raids have also been carried out at a pizza restaurant in St. Helens.

The bomber’s home in Wigan is being picked apart forensically, and the evidence of a network supporting his act is accumulating.

A picture is emerging of the bomber, who was on the security services’ radar as a peripheral figure, yet it is claimed he had some extremely dangerous associates and friends.

In Manchester few people are thinking about him. The lives he took, however, are in everyone’s minds, and floral tributes to them fill St Anne’s square.
