United Kingdom police recover number of items after arresting 18-year-old man

United Kingdom police recover number of items after arresting 18-year-old man”

Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the explosion on a packed London Underground train which was about to depart Parsons Green underground station at 8.20 am (0720 GMT) on Friday. The port was subsequently evacuated and police last night revealed "a number of items" had been recovered.

At the time, the Home Secretary Amber Rudd described the arrest of the man in connection with Friday morning's attack as very significant, but added the operation is ongoing.

"At this stage we are keeping an open mind around whether more than one person is responsible for the attack and we are still pursuing numerous lines of enquiry and at a great pace".

Penelope Jones, 71, and her husband Ronald, 89, have housed hundreds of children including refugees from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

No arrests have been made at the scene. As a precautionary measure, we evacuated the surrounding buildings and set up cordons within a 100-metre radius.

Mr Basu said that the police are working to support displaced residents.

Of those injured, 19 victims were taken to hospital by ambulance, while 11 presented themselves for treatment.

But Mr Basu said the terror threat level would remain at "Critical" - the highest level - while officers investigated whether others were involved.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said: London has not stopped after other awful attacks and it will not stop after this one.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced the national threat level would be raised to "critical", meaning another attack may be imminent.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said "significant" police activity would continue over the weekend and thanked police, adding: "They are there to keep us safe".

Aaron Nye, a former foster child of the couple, said: "I really feel for the Penny and Ron".

This morning the Met confirmed another arrest has taken place.

"They told me to leave", said Mrs Jamali. "The public should remain vigilant as our staff, officers and partners".

"Anyone with information is urged to call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or, in an emergency, always call 999".
