British police lift cordon after bomb squad called to Wigan

LONDON, May 25 (Reuters) - British police investigating the Manchester suicide bombing said they had lifted a cordon and allowed residents to return home on Thursday after bomb disposal experts were called to an address in the nearby town of Wigan.

The bomb disposal units had earlier been called to the scene after police said potentially suspicious items were found.
