Manchester police said Thursday they had let a woman walk free after she was detained for questioning late on Wednesday in the city’s northern Blackley area.
"Woman arrested in Blackley in connection with attack at Manchester Arena has been released without charge," the police said in a statement.
The woman was the sixth to be detained in the United Kingdom as part of a fast-moving investigation into this Monday’s bombing at an Ariana Grande pop concert. The blast killed 22 people and injured over 60.
