People on social media have expressed their anger towards the man stealing flowers from the memorial.
One saying: “See no matter how good you treat them they’ll stab you in back.
Open borders just don’t work !!”
Another added: “Their lowlife bastards pinching from a memorial, that’s it, same as any other person that would do it, good on you for confronting them, and I’m sure you would have done the same if they were british”
And: “Shocking he still walked off with it… Should of called the police… It’s all still raw and Manchester police would of had a field day with these two… Should of made him put the toy back… Another prick giving yet another excuse for everyone to hate… What a tw*t…”
It’s fair to say people are very angry with this video footage and they have every right to feel that way.
Last night police reported that the Manchester bombing trio had been released without charge.
The men aged 20, 24 and 37 were among 16 people arrested by police – 11 now remain in custody.
More than 1,000 officers are working on the investigation to piece together what happened and whether others had worked with 22-year-old bomber Salman Abedi.
The suicide attack killed 22 people and injured dozens more at Manchester Arena.
Detective chief superintendent Russ Jackson said the release of potential suspects “can be expected in investigations of this nature as we corroborate accounts that have been provided.”
