Greater Manchester Police said a woman arrested in Blackley in connection with the Manchester attack has been released without charge, according to their official Twitter account.

British police arrested a sixth person, a woman, in connection with Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester, following searches in the north of the city on Wednesday.

“These searches are connected to Monday’s horrific attack on the Manchester Arena, but this is a fast moving investigation and we are keeping an open mind at this stage,” police said in a statement at the time. “A woman has been arrested at an address in connection with the investigation.”

Earlier, the BBC report that armed police had made the arrest during a raid on a block of flats.
