    When is it ever a good time?

    The Police and the Army are currently patrolling the streets and have made it extra safe. There will be more troops on that day

    Anyone who knows the Old Trafford Cricket Ground will know it’s a fortress. There are metal barriers everywhere. In fact, more fortified than Old Trafford which is next door.

    Tickets have sold out.

    Two massive events on that day – this and Carrick’s testimonial. Manchester will be on lock down that day.

    “Police have consulted with the families of the victims about Grande returning to Manchester, and Hopkins said the majority were “very much in favour”. “There are some that clearly aren’t,” he added. “That is absolutely understandable.”

      In fact, more fortified than Old Trafford, Manchester United’s stadium which is next door*
