Police ordered residents on Elsmore Road in Manchester, where Abedi was registered as living, indoors as they carried out a controlled explosion.

The property became the centre of the investigation into Monday's outrage as detectives hunted those thought to be behind the blast.

The suspect was named by US security services in Washington, as those who live on the red-bricked semi-detached street said they know little about those who reside at the address.
