Police are trying to establish the movements of Salman Abedi before he killed 22 people at a concert by U.S singer Ariana Grande on May 22, in the deadliest militant attack in Britain for 12 years.

“This is potentially a significant development in the investigation,” Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson said in a statement, which added that enquiries concerning the vehicle were ongoing.
