Sporting events and concerts have taken place across the UK amid heightened security following the suicide bomb attack in Manchester. The Duke of Cambridge laid a wreath in tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena attack on the pitch before the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium. An accompanying note, signed by the Prince, read: “We will never fear coming together to celebrate all that unites us. “In memory of the friends and family taken from us in Manchester.”
A minute’s silence was also held to remember the 22 people killed.

Heightened security measures were in place at the 90,000-capacity stadium, with a helicopter hovering above and officers on horseback patrolling the grounds. Arsenal won the game 2-1. More than 1,000 armed police officers were on standby in the capital as the FA Cup Final and the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final at Twickenham went ahead.

Rugby fans also observed a minute’s silence before the kick off of the final, which Exeter Chiefs won 23-20 over Wasps after extra time. Fans at both events were advised not to bring bags and to expect additional security checks and searches. Police had urged to go out and enjoy themselves over the bank holiday weekend. Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley – national lead for counter-terror policing – urged Britons to go about their business as usual.
He said: “Enjoy yourselves and be reassured by the greater policing presence you will see. “We can’t let the terrorists win by dissuading us from going about our normal business.”

A huge security operation was also staged as the first major event took place in Manchester since the attack on Monday night. Hundreds of police officers were on duty at Lancashire Cricket Club’s Old Trafford ground ahead of the Corteeners concert, with 50,000 fans expected to attend. Armed police were stationed at gates and officers in high visibility jackets were in position every 50 yards on roads approaching the stadium. Airport-style security devices were used to screen visitors, with queues as tickets and bags were checked before entry.

Iron Maiden were also set to appear at the O2 in London, and US singer Anastacia was performing at the O2 Apollo in Manchester. On Sunday, the Great Manchester Run will go ahead as planned with a large turnout expected in the wake of the attack. Nine suspects are in custody following days of intense police activity and a series of raids in Greater Manchester, Warwickshire and Merseyside.
The country’s leading counter-terror officer has said “immense” progress has been made in the probe into a suspected network linked to suicide bomber Salman Abedi.
Operation Temperer, which has seen hundreds of armed soldiers support police on the streets, will be gradually wound down from midnight on Monday after the UK’s threat level was reduced from “critical” to “severe”1.
Manchester’s Arndale Centre has been evacuated, with people seen running away screaming and witnesses saying a man was arrested by armed police.
“Security guards and police who were armed shouted at people to get away,” said Sky’s Mike McCarthy, at the scene. “At least 100 people came round the corner – many of them screaming and trying to get away.” Some people fell over in the rush to get away and police with sniffer dogs went inside the shopping centre, said McCarthy. Police said they do not think it was related to the incident at Manchester Arena and the centre has now reopened.

The evacuation happened around 12 hours after a bomb attack killed 22 people at a concert at the arena.1 :: Live updates – Manchester attack2 Extra armed police are on UK streets after the attack, with a high state of alert seeing a suspicious item blown up in Manchester in the early hours.

A controlled explosion took place just after 1.30am in Cathedral Gardens, near the site of the attack, but it later turned out to be a pile of abandoned clothing.
:: Security services think they know who bomber is3 Another suspicious item sparked an evacuation of London’s Victoria coach station around 6.40am. Passengers were moved to the end of the street as the area was cordoned off and buses diverted . However, the alert was called off shortly after 8am.

Manchester United players arriving at the team’s Carrington training ground have also had their cars searched. Security staff used mirrors to check underneath vehicles and opened up the boots. The team are getting set for Wednesday’s Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm.
A “mix of armed and unarmed officers” were called up for the rush hour in London, with Met Police chief Cressida Dick saying they would “continue for as long as is needed”. Police Scotland said more armed officers would be at “transport hubs and crowded places”. Policing in crowded places is also being reviewed in the West Midlands, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. Extra armed officers were called up in London and other cities after the Westminster attack in March and the Berlin attack in December. The threat from international terrorism in the UK remains “severe” – as it has been since August 2014 – meaning an attack is highly likely.
