A police spokesman said: "A man has been arrested at the Arndale Centre".

The Prime Minister is now making her way to Manchester to meet with its mayor Andy Burnham and the local police.

"Police. gained entry to the property using an explosive charge to take the door off", said Neville Edwards, an events safety adviser, 32, whose mother's house backs onto the property which was raided.

The group, who were carrying English flags and shouting Islamophobic slurs, clashed with police outside the shopping centre, which was evacuated last night following another terrorism scare.
