The public is being urged to help police piece together the Manchester bomber's final movements as his cousins claimed he plotted "secretly to himself".

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people May 22 at Manchester Arena, police said.

The developments came amid reports ticket scalpers were attempting to profit from the upcoming Ariana Grande concert to benefit victims.

Officers discovered the white Nissan Micra on Devell Court, not far from Banff Road in Rusholme, as they were tracking the movements of attacker Salman Abedi, who was captured on CCTV in the area between May 18 and 22.

"For people who have seen it as a big network that we are involved in - there's nothing like that".

"He never shared it with any members of the family - if he would of, we could have done something to stop that happening".

One University of Manchester student who lives on Oxney Road, next to Devell House, said, "we are all unable to access the house", and that they "were just told to stay away for the next few hours" by police.


"And the fact that the person that did this is related to us by blood".

Proceeds from the One Love Manchester event will go towards supporting grieving families and victims of the bombing. I really do feel for them.

Police are investigating the movements of Salman Abedi before he killed 22 people at a concert by United States singer Ariana Grande on May 22, in the deadliest militant attack in Britain for 12 years.

"We went in, we could come out, we can try and move on with our lives".

"We appreciate the road closures and evacuation have led to disruption and we would like to thank local people for their understanding while this police activity has been ongoing". As a result, police have asked anyone who previously called about Abedi to reach out again. "Do you have any information about his movements on these dates?"

GMP confirmed yesterday that they still have 10 people in custody on suspicion of offences contrary to the Terrorism Act, and that six people have been released without charge.
