The UK Terror threat in the United Kingdom is still “highly likely” the Home Secretary has warned. The public rn be reassured that the police are making progress on exactly how the Tube bucket bomb was prepared.

The Terror threat following two arrests has been lowered to ‘severe’ from ‘critical’ Amber Rudd has confirmed.

A Terror attack within the UK is still highly likely rather than being expected imminently. The Government increased the threat level on Friday to the highest level following a bucket bomb at Parsons Green Tube Station which left 30 passengers hurt.

Troops were quickly put in place at secure locations across the United Kingdom that cannot be accessed by the public allowing armed officers to be freed for high visibility armed police patrols.

Two people have not been arrested following the bombing in West London, however, people are still urged to be vigilant but not alarmed

The military will remain in place to support police over the next few days and then return to their original positions.

Amber Rudd said “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work, and also the police, the security services and the emergency services who did such a fantastic job.”

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley confirmed that the Met Police and security services are “getting a greater understanding of the preparation of the device”.

A number of armed police officers would remain on the streets and transport networks a number of days to reassure members of the public.

So far police have arrested two young men in connection with the Tube blast, one is an 18-year-old man who was arrested in the departure lounge of Dover port, in Kent and a second man aged 21 was arrested in Hounslow, West London.
