British police have declined to comment on cooperation with international agencies as they reported "significant" arrests in the investigation. Some restrictions have been placed on information sharing with US agencies.

British police said on Thursday evening that they had uncovered potentially suspicious items in a house near the northern English town of Wigan and evacuated the area as a precaution while a bomb disposal team evaluated the items.
Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins gave a press conference earlier on Thursday saying arrests made over the last few days were "significant."

"Initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation," he said.
Hopkins said that families of those who died had been informed about the leaking of information about the bombing to the New York Times newspaper. "It is absolutely understandable that this has caused much distress for families that are already suffering terribly with their loss," he said.

British police have temporarily stopped sharing some information with the United States about the Manchester terror investigation following a string of leaks by US officials to the media.
