Solihull Editorial 26th May, 2017   0

POLICE continue to hold a man arrested in Nuneaton in connection with the attack at Manchester Arena.

Counter-terror detectives arrested the man at gunpoint on Wednesday night – as operations were stepped up across the country to identify a terror network behind Monday’s suicide bombing.

He still remains in custody and is being quizzed about the terror attack.

Increased high visibility police patrols across Coventry and Warwickshire – including armed officers – remain.




Assistant Chief Constable Martin Evans from Warwickshire Police said: “I know many people in our communities will be very concerned about the raised terror level threat and the recent arrest in Nuneaton, our colleagues from Greater Manchester Police are leading on this investigation .

“We will continue to have increased high visibility police patrols across Warwickshire to provide community reassurance.


“I continue to urge the public to be vigilant, to remain alert but not alarmed and to report any suspicious activity to the police by calling the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789321. In an emergency always dial 999.”
