MANCHESTER BOMB INVESTIGATION

Greater Manchester Police

Greater Manchester Police has conducted a review of the investigation into bombing of Manchester city centre in 1996.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usDeputy Chief Constable Dave Whatton said: "The Manchester bomb had a tremendous impact on the lives of people in the area, which is why we have thoroughly reviewed the case. A team of officers from GMP's Anti-Terrorist Unit carried out a detailed analysis ahead of the 10th anniversary of the incident.

"In consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, we have concluded that at this time there is no realistic possibility of a prosecution. This has allowed us to release new material that we have held for the last 10 years.

"Any speculation about individuals alleged to be linked to the incident is unhelpful as there is insufficient evidence to substantiate charges.

"As with all major investigations if new information comes to light it would be considered."
