The raid comes following a night of police activity as officers hunt down Abedi’s alleged terror network.
Police are carrying out a raid at a second property in Moss Side hours after arresting a man in the area in the early hours of this morning.
The search is taking place at a separate address to the earlier arrest.
Police have cordoned off two shops and adjoining flats on Princess Road with forensics officers searching inside one of the shops and a barbers with businesses and flats on lockdown amid fears Abedi may have built a second bomb and given it to fellow jihadis.
Officers who raided Abedi’s discovered a bomb factory containing a huge stash of explosive chemicals with many other components.
A security source told the Telegraph: “The worry is there was enough to build two or three bombs and we can’t rule that out.”
The officials believe Abedi assembled the bomb himself after learning his trade in Libya.
