Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has now issued a photo of a man who attended the concert who it is keen to speak to in connection with the incident. The force said it was sharing the image a year later because officers had “utilised several lines of enquiry” and is now hoping to seek “fresh information”.

Detective Constable Grace O’Rourke, of GMP’s Trafford division, said: “We always take a robust approach to these kinds of reports and we have launched this new appeal to ensure we get justice for the victim.

“We will continue to investigate and we are asking anyone with any information to please get in touch with us.”
