Raided barbershop visited by Salman Abedi 'shut down day after bombing'

Police have raided businesses and homes as they race to shut down Salman Abedi's suspected terror network.
Amid fears there could be more bombs, officers swooped on properties, including a barbershop said to have been visited regularly by Abedi, which shut down in the immediate aftermath of the attack.

It is understood that an armed response unit arrived at the Fade Away shop in Manchester's Moss Side in the early hours of Friday and the shutter was cut open at around 5.15am.

Items including a laptop were seen in evidence bags taken away by police.

Byron Gibbs, who owns a hardware store next door, said the bomber appeared to know the owners.

He told Sky News: "He used to be there regularly. One of them (the owners) came there on Tuesday, but he didn't come to the door, he just stopped at the bus stop for a long time and then jumped back over the fence.

"It hasn't been open since Tuesday."
