Four arrested in London raids over alleged terrorist plot as police blow out tyres of car carrying two suspects
Kim SenguptaFour men have been arrested over an alleged terrorist plot after police carried out raids across London and blew out the tyres of a car carrying two of the suspects.
A group of men, who were said to have had access to an arms cache, had been under surveillance by police and MI5 for some time following intelligence reports that they were planning to carry out an attack.
The focus of the plot was said to be on the capital and, although serious, was not, it is believed, at the highest end of those the intelligence and security services have had to deal with in recent times. They denied reports that it involved a “Nairobi-style” assault.
