Assuming you are a Liberian national you will need a transit visa. You can check for yourself on the UK Government website.

You’ll need a visa to pass through the UK in transit (unless you’re exempt)

You should apply for a Direct Airside Transit visa if you arrive in the UK on a flight and leave again without passing through immigration control.

    @Traveller According to the Government link I provided a transit visa is required for Liberian nationals even when answering "No" to "Will you pass through UK border control". – MrAndySweet Sep 13 '18 at 14:34

    @Traveller that doesn't seem to be supported by the page you've linked to. Even if it were, I'd trust that page an awful lot less than the advice from gov.uk. – Chris H Sep 13 '18 at 14:34
  • @MrAndySweet I know, I was simply confirming for the OP that he won’t need to pass through Immigration (as referred to in your reply), in case the OP isn’t familiar with Manchester airport. I didn’t say he wouldn’t need a visa. – Traveller Sep 13 '18 at 17:32
