Following Manchester’s terror attack, locals are reporting a bomb squad have conducted a controlled explosion at an address in Fallowfield.

Police have confirmed reports that anti-terror teams have conducted a controlled explosion in Fallowfield.

Two arrests have been made in Fallowfield and Whalley Range, as part of the investigation into the attack at the Manchester Arena.


Rosemary Ward, 21, told the Manchester Evening News: “They were all running out of the house when a big bomb went off.

“That’s obviously what it was because the whole house was shaking. Everyone was panicking.

“I heard there was 20 people in that one house. It was scary.”

The controlled explosion and raids followed last night’s attack at the Manchester Arena which killed 22 and injured 59.
