The government should introduce compulsory bag searches and metal detectors at major venues following the Manchester Arena attack, the city's mayor has said.

Andy Burnham backed calls from victims' families to see security stepped up in an update to a report into the bombing.

Twenty-two people died when Salman Abedi detonated a device in May 2017.

Security Minister Ben Wallace said the government's "utmost priority is protecting our citizens".

Mr Burnham commissioned the report by Lord Kerslake into the response by emergency services to the suicide bombing, which happened at an Ariana Grande concert.

The update also said the city's fire service underwent a "root and branch review" after criticism of its response.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

Unfortunately it seems a price that has to be paid for all the enrichment multiculturalism has brought us, I see that GMP are holding another anti terror exercise, at the last one in 2016 they were criticized because the terrorist in the operation shouted 'Allahu Akbar', they were accused of racism, in 2017 we all know what happened at the Arena, maybe this time the actor playing the terrorist could shout 'BREXIT' before launching the attack, it'll keep the liberals happy.
