LONDON (REUTERS) - Police and security services have found more explosives which could have been used in follow-up attacks to Monday's bombing which killed 22 in Manchester, the Independent reported, citing security sources.

The publication's Thursday edition said one device had been blown up in a controlled explosion, and that security services were concerned that further bombs could have been created by a network intent on carrying out further attacks.
