After an embarrassing saga involving delays, concert cancellations and a near miss when part of the ceiling fell off, the new Co-op Live arena finally opened on Tuesday. Is Britain's biggest arena over its troubles?

Elbow were meant to play the 15th event in the Co-op Live schedule - but the Manchester band ended up becoming the opening act by default.

Earlier planned shows by Peter Kay, Olivia Rodrigo, Take That and others have fallen by the wayside over the past few weeks because of overrunning works and other problems.

And some ticket-holders had understandable jitters about whether Elbow's concert on Tuesday would happen.

So there were big sighs of relief and a few whoops of joy when, yes, the doors did actually open, and fans were finally let in.
