Arena bomb plotter ‘may never be freed’ as judge jails him for at least 55 years

Homegrown jihadi Hashem Abedi is expected to die in jail after being handed 24 life sentences for organising the Manchester Arena bomb plot which killed 22 people and injured hundreds of others. The 23-year-old again refused to come up from his cell at the Old Bailey to be in courtroom two as the judge, Mr Justice Jeremy Baker, told him he would spend at least 55 years in prison before he could even be considered for parole.
