He was arrested last Wednesday in the Nuneaton area.

As it stands 16 people in total have been arrested in connection with the investigation, of which six people have since been released without charge.

Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham told the Manchester Evening News:

It’s right and fitting that Manchester Day is devoted to those who lost their lives and those that continue to live with the aftermath of last week’s attack.

“It will also give us all an opportunity to pay tribute to our heroic public servants and celebrate the incredible Manchester spirit that has sustained us all through these dark days.”

A poignant tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack has appeared in Glasgow.

The names of the 22 victims appeared overnight on the Squinty Bridge as a poignant tribute in the city centre.
