United Kingdom review: Manchester concert attack might have been stopped

07 December 2017, 02:30 | Andy Ferguson

One of the biggest attacks in the UK in 2017 was at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena

Nine terror attacks against UK thwarted over last 12 months

The Manchester suicide bombing that killed 22 people at a pop concert in May could have been prevented had security services responded differently to intelligence about the terrorist behind the atrocity, according to a review by barrister David Anderson.

The deadly suicide bombing at Manchester Arena might have been prevented if information had been handled differently, an independent review of the counter-terrorism performance by British police and intelligence services suggested Tuesday.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd told Parliament today that Abedi was "a closed subject of interest at the time of the attack" and was therefore not under active investigation.

Included are also details about Abedi's that were overlooked, including his past dealings in theft, receiving stolen goods, assault and indirect communication with a member of the Islamic State.

The report says material relating to Butt received in the two weeks prior to the attack added little to the intelligence picture and did not identify activity that led up to the attack.

"MI5 and counter-terrorism policing got a great deal right (but) particularly in the case of Manchester, they could have succeeded had the cards fallen differently", the report found.

"It is unknowable whether such an investigation would have allowed Abedi's plans to be pre-empted and thwarted: MI5 assesses that it would not", the report stated.

In its recommendations for improving anti-terror measures, the report suggested United Kingdom police work closely with tech companies such as Google, Facebook and Amazon to monitor suspicious browsing and purchases.
