Greater Manchester Police confirmed a 30-year-old man was in the hospital, and they were waiting to question him about the incident.

One neighbour commented “The noise was really loud like a big boom something exploding or collapsing, that’s all I can say. Scary. We heard a big blast and we didn’t think much of it at first.
