The inquests into the deaths of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack are set to open later.
Twenty two people died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a home-made device in the arena’s foyer on 22 May following an Ariana Grande concert.
More than 100 people at the event were also injured in the blast.
Nigel Meadows, the senior coroner for the city, is expected to open the inquest at Manchester Civil Justice Centre at 10:30 BST.
The inquests are expected to be adjourned until after the completion of the police investigation.
An inquest into the death of the 22-year-old bomber will be opened at a separate date.
A total of 21 people have now been arrested following the attack. Twelve have been released without charge. Nine remain in custody.
Tributes left at St Ann’s Square for the 22 victims will be moved at 19:00, Manchester City Council has confirmed.
