Manchester Airport pipe bomb plot: Security questioned

A 43-year-old man has been convicted of trying to smuggle a pipe bomb on to a plane at Manchester Airport.

The "crude improvised explosive device" was found in Nadeem Muhammad's luggage as he passed security on 30 January.

There have been calls for an inquiry after police initially failed to detect the device was "potentially viable" and he was allowed to board a plane.
