The brothers who carried out the Manchester Arena attack "did not act alone" and others who knew about it are still "at large", an inquiry has heard.

Twenty-two people were killed and hundreds more injured when Salman Abedi detonated a bomb in May 2017.
His brother Hashem was jailed for 55 years in August for helping plan the atrocity.
A barrister representing British Transport Police at the public inquiry said it was "obvious" they had help.

They've just pulled a bomb out of the Rochdale canal off Grimshaw lane, surely it's not been left there by the Luftwaffe.........strange.  :-\

I believe this was possibly connected to St Joseph's Children's Home / St Joseph's Industrial School.


Do you have your mother-in-law's birth cert? What address is on it?

Recorders - yeah, known to have been played in Shakespeare's time and so oddly appropriate 400 hundred years later for a bunch of us schoolboys with knobbly knees to embarrassingly dress up in tights (no, I'm not showing that picture...) to commemorate the fact... :-[ I still wake up in the middle of the night...
