'Pure speculation': British Home Sec dismisses Trump's Parsons Green tweets

'Pure speculation': British Home Sec dismisses Trump's Parsons Green tweets”

The terror threat remains at its highest level - critical - meaning an attack may be imminent.

However, the classification means they think an attack is still highly likely.

Britain's Home Secretary Amber Rudd has launched a campaign to find a Lead Commissioner for Countering Extremism on Sunday, two days after the United Kingdom suffered its fifth terror attack in a year.

Rudd cautioned that the investigation was ongoing.

Hours after the arrest, armed police carried out an operation at a residential address in Surrey, south west of London, in connection to the attack probe.

An 18-year-old man was arrested Saturday in Dover, where ferries leave for France.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the attack.

He is being held at a police station in south London under the Terrorism Act.

In a statement, Ms Rudd said: "Following the attack in Parsons Green last Friday the police have made good progress with what is an ongoing operation".

They continued searching a home in Sunbury, another southwestern London suburb where neighbours were evacuated on Saturday.

The two arrests indicate authorities believe the attack at the Parsons Green station was part of a coordinated plot, not the act of a single person.

"We are still pursing numerous lines of enquiry and at a great pace", Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism co-ordinator Neil Basu said.

The property is registered to an elderly foster couple who had been honoured for their work with child refugees.

Kent Police detained the man in the port area of Dover.

Of the 30 people injured in Friday's attack, one remains in hospital, NHS England said. One person is still being treated at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which has a special unit for treating burns.

He reportedly "froze" as he was surrounded by cops at 7.50am yesterday after being tracked by facial recognition technology following the London Tube attack that injured 30.

The ISIS has claimed the responsibility for the explosion at Parsons Green.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said police were "working hard" to track down those responsible for the blast.

Describing the moment she was instructed to leave, she said: "I was in my house with my children and there was a knock at the door from the police".
