Parsons Green bomb suspect 'quizzed by police at port before arrest'

Parsons Green bomb suspect 'quizzed by police at port before arrest'”

Both were said by local media to have links to a property in Sunbury-on-Thames, a town just outside London, where police were carrying out a major search. Both are being questioned in a south London police station.

An 18-year-old man and a 21-year-old were arrested separately by police on Saturday and searches are under way at two addresses on the outskirts of London, according to United Kingdom police.

In the aftermath, the authorities raised Britain's threat level to its highest rank of critical, meaning an attack was considered imminent, but lowered this after arresting two men on Saturday.

The younger suspect was detained on Saturday morning in the departure area of Dover ferry port, which is the busiest ferry hub in Europe and a gateway to the French coast. Police have asked the traveling public to be vigilant and to expect to see an increase in armed police.

Farroukh was arrested after he finished his shift at a fried chicken shop in Hounslow, west London.

The bomb only partially exploded. Officials say 30 people were injured, including some hurt in the panic that ensued, and all but one have been released from the hospital. Some suffered burns and others were hurt in a stampede to escape.

Friend Alison Griffiths said the couple - foster parents for nearly 40 years who had taken in up to 300 children, including eight refugees - had an 18-year-old and a 22-year-old staying with them recently.

Queen Elizabeth II honored Ronald and Penelope Jones for their fostering work in 2010, awarding them MBEs (Member of the Order of the British Empire) "for services to children and families".

A friend, Alison Griffiths, said the Joneses are "great pillars of the community" who have taken in several hundred children in the last 40 years.

"There was another arrest overnight and two men are in custody".

The two searches were taking place at a suburban home in Sunbury, southwest of London, and in Stanwell, another suburb close to London Heathrow Airport.

The second search started Sunday afternoon and was linked to the second suspect.

Earlier, she had dismissed as "pure speculation" U.S. President Donald Trump's claim, made Friday on Twitter, that a "loser terrorist" behind the attack was known to Scotland Yard.

The threat level for Gibraltar remains at "substantial" as the Gibraltar Contingency Council closely monitors events of United Kingdom terror attack.
