    Contact Manchester and tell them the situation and see what they say.

    As the other commenter said, contact Manchester ASAP and explain your situation. They may be willing to make alternative arrangements, such as a Skype interview (which I know Nottingham do for example), or even pay your travel costs but I don't know the likelihood of that.

    A return to Manchester is still only £59 (without a railcard - get a young persons railcard and you can know 1/3 off that) for an afternoon interview.
