Following Monday's deadly attacks on Manchester during an Ariana Grande concert in the United Kingdom, the UK authority has on Wednesday May 24 warned the United States to henceforth stop leaking out their secrets or investigative information about the Manchester attacks without permission from the UK Police, describing such leaks as 'irritating'.

The US, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand make up the "Five Eyes" alliance and share sensitive information but the U.K government is angry that American intelligence officials exposed to CNN that the Monday attack was a suicide bombing and that a male at the scene had been identified as the probable suicide bomber, without verification or asking for permission from the UK.

"The British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect operational integrity, the element of surprise," UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd told BBC Radio 4's "Today" program on Wednesday.

Amber Rudd further said, "So it is irritating if it gets released from other sources and I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again."

"We wouldn't go that far to say if the U.S officials had compromised our ongoing investigation. I can say that they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn't happen again”.

Meanwhile, the suspect of the Manchester attack has been revealed as 22-year-old Salman Abedi and for the first time in 10 years, the U.K terror alert has been raised to critical level.
