UK terror plot thwarted within minutes of execution, Met chief reveals

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 14, 2017 1:59 pm

Police have thwarted five terror attacks in the last few weeks including some which were "very close" to being carried out, Britain's most senior police officer has said. This year alone, the UK has been targeted by four terror attacks - three of which happened in London in busy and popular areas - which killed and injured scores of people. Speaking on Nick Ferrari's show on LBC on Friday, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said a "very large number of plots" have been foiled over the last few years.

Pressed on exactly how many attacks have been thwarted, she said that in "just the last few weeks", five have been averted.

"Overall I think it is well into the teens in the last couple of years, where we know people were intent on attacking and that has been stopped," she said.

"In addition, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of arrests of people who are radicalised, and are either spreading hatred or supporting terrorism, or want to carry out a terrorist attack.

Should be deporting more of these terrorists as well as their immediate family staight away, even just for strong suspicion of them being a threat...
