A barber shop in the Moss Side area of Manchester raided by police hasn’t opened since Monday night’s bombing according to neighbours.
Sources say that an armed response unit arrived at the Fade Away shop in Princess Road in the early hours and that the shutter to the barbershop was cut open at about 5.15 am to gain access to the front door.
A cordon was then placed around the building at 6am and stretches to an adjoining chemist, cafe and upstairs flats.
Police have yet to confirm if the raid, near the junction of Claremont Road, is in connection with the ongoing investigation into Monday’s suicide bombing.
A marked police van is parked outside the store next to a bus stop with a number of uniformed officers guarding the cordon.
