Manchester Arena attack: Inquiry told opportunities missed to identify suicide bomber

North of England Correspondent

The public inquiry into the Manchester Arena bombing has been hearing claims by experts that there were missed opportunities to identify Salman Abedi as a suicide bomber – before he set off the device which killed 22 people.

The inquiry heard that witnesses had tried to raise the alarm less than an hour before Abedi detonated his bomb, but no action was taken.
