Undercover armed police officers arrested a man in connection with the Manchester Arena terror attack in a dramatic confrontation. Images posted on Twitter show officers, their faces covered by balaclavas, holding guns and surrounding a car.
Greater Manchester Police said the man was carrying a package when he was arrested in Wigan – another image purportedly showed the package, a red bag, on the road.
In a statement, police said: ‘We have made an arrest in Wigan this afternoon in connection with the investigation into the horrific incident at Manchester Arena. When arrested, the man was carrying a package which we are currently assessing.’
