LONDON, May 31 — A week after Britain\’s worse act of terrorism since the London bombings of 2005, life in Manchester is showing signs of slowly starting to get back to normal.

On Tuesday, the city\’s busy Victoria Station re-opened, with thousands of commuters once again arriving by train to reach their workplaces in the city center.

Staff at the railway station, which adjoins the Manchester Arena, was visibly upset as they returned to work. Some of them had been the first to respond on the night of the attack. The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling and Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham laid wreaths at the station as it reopened.

A police cordon was finally lifted around areas close to the Manchester Arena where suicide bomber Salman Abedi unleashed terror last Monday, killing 22 people and injuring many others.
