It has emerged that a dispute between the Fire Brigades Union and employers at the Fire and Rescue Service, means that terrorism response teams are no longer in operation in Greater Manchester.

An updated report into the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing has called on firefighters to work with the Home Office to find a solution – while the government has been urged to introduce compulsory security checks at large venues.
