An area to the south of Manchester was evacuated on Friday after police found a vehicle they suspected was linked to a terror attack that killed 22 persons in the city last week.

Ten men, aged between 18 and 44, remain in custody on suspicion of terrorism offences in connection with the attack, police have said.

Bomb disposal experts were in Rusholme, and a 100-metre cordon was put in place after Greater Manchester police described the auto as "potentially significant" to its investigation.

Police walk up the street towards Devell House, in Rusholme, Manchester, Britain June 2, 2017.

"What we still need to understand is if he had any of the bomb parts in his possession before he went out of the country, this is why we are tracking his movements so carefully".

They are hoping to piece together Salman Abedi's preparations before the blast that killed 22 people and wounded dozens of others at an Ariana Grande concert.

Police have also recently released new CCTV images of Abedi carrying a large blue suitcase and are appealing for any information.

The concert, titled One Love Manchester, will be broadcast live.

Greater Manchester Police said they had located the vehicle after tracking bomber Salman Abedi's movements in the days leading up to the May 22 attack on a concert by United States singer Ariana Grande.

Authorities reportedly believe 22-year-old Abedi, from Manchester, made two phone calls to numbers in Libya - where his family lives - that were not registered to his relatives.

The developments came amid reports ticket scalpers were attempting to profit from the upcoming Ariana Grande concert to benefit victims.

They've also arrested another man as part of their investigation.

Six people, including a 15-year-old boy, have been released without charge.
