Manchester pre-inquest hearings delayed to 2018

Manchester Coroner's Office has revealed that the pre-inquest review hearing into the deaths of the Manchester Arena attack victims has been delayed until 2018.

Evidence is still being gathered, with Manchester Coroner's Office saying it would confirm a new date early next year. The inquests were originally opened and adjourned in June.

22 people died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated an explosive device after an Ariana Grande concert on 22 May 2017. A separate inquest into the death of Abedi was also opened and adjourned in June.
