(Reuters) – Police confirmed on Tuesday they were treating a stabbing attack which injured three people at Manchesters Victoria train station as a terrorist investigation, and were searching an address in the Cheetham Hill area of the city.

Earlier on Tuesday police had said the investigation was led by counter-terrorist experts but they were “keeping an open mind”.

“We are treating this as a terrorist investigation,” Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told reporters.
