  • Suspect remains in custody after three hurt during New Year's Eve stabbing

New Year's Eve fireworks at Albert Square went on as planned despite the incident, according to Manchester City Council.

The 25-year-old man who was arrested at the scene on Monday night is now being detained under a mental health law, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said late Tuesday.

The knife-wielding man was caught on camera being tackled by security officials at Manchester Victoria station before being arrested on Monday night.

"The investigation has moved at a very fast pace and detectives are increasingly confident that the man acted alone in the final stages of the attack". "Tonight's events will have understandably anxious people but I need to stress that the incident is not ongoing, a man is in custody and there is now no intelligence to suggest there is any wider threat at this time", Assistant Chief Constable Rob Potts said in a statement.

Hopkins said the police investigation is continuing.

Footage of the aftermath of the attack showed a man being held down by five police officers, with blood stains on the pavement.

Man stabbed in Manchester Victoria station on tram platform. "I think the combination of those three things gives a pretty clear picture of what happened, but beyond that the police are being very tight-lipped with the information they have".

In a statement, the arrested man's family said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were seriously injured, their families and friends". A British Transport Police officer was also stabbed in his shoulder.

Clack said: "I just heard this most blood-curdling scream and looked down the platform". It took place at a key transport hub right next to the Manchester Arena, where 22 people were killed in an attack on an Ariana Grande concert in 2017.

The suspect was heard to shout "Allah" and "Long live the Caliphate" during the incident at the station.

Officers using a Taser stun gun and "captor gel", an irritant created to incapacitate suspects, managed to pin the attacker, who was thought to be armed with two knives, to the ground.

There have been no major terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom for the past year but MI5 and the police say they are dealing with 700 investigations into suspected terrorism.

He said police officers used a taser and capsicum spray before "six or seven" officers jumped on the man.

Russ Jackson, an assistant chief constable with Greater Manchester police (GMP), described the attack on the officer and a couple in their 50s as frenzied and random in nature.

"This detailed work will continue and we are now searching an address in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester which is believed to be where the man had most recently been living".

Neighbours have suggested the suspect is of Somali-origin and was thought to have lived in the Netherlands before moving to the United Kingdom around 10 to 15 years ago.

The North West ambulance service said it sent three vehicles to the incident and took all three victims to hospital for treatment.
