United Kingdom threat level remains at critical: minister

United Kingdom threat level remains at critical: minister

She said his claim that Scotland Yard had the bomber "in their sights" was not based on an intelligence leak and was "pure speculation".

Rudd's comments echoed those of British Prime Minister Theresa May who said on Friday it was not helpful for anyone to speculate on investigations.

She added that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), which sets the terror threat level, had decided "sufficient progress has been made" to lower it.

Ms Rudd's announcement comes just hours after police arrested a second man in connection with the bombing.

The terror threat level has ben downgraded back down to severe after being raised to critical in the wake of the Tube bombing at Parsons Green Tube on Friday.

Police said they are searching a residential address in Stanwell, Surrey, in conjunction with this arrest.

Five hours later, armed police raided a home in posh Sunbury-on-Thames that belongs to the Jones couple, who received an MBE in 2009 for fostering hundreds of kids.

Just one person is being treated at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which has a specialist burns unit. Residents were allowed to return home Sunday but the Jones' house remains cordoned off.

Green says "I would urge anyone from the president of the United States on downwards not to tweet" about activities during an active police terror investigation.

An 18-year-old man was detained in the departure lounge of Dover port, in Kent, and a 21-year-old man was held at a house in Hounslow, west London.

Britain's terror threat level remains at "critical" - the highest level - meaning that authorities believe another attack is imminent.

In a statement, Ms Rudd said: "Following the attack in Parsons Green last Friday the police have made good progress with what is an ongoing operation". An 18-year-old man was arrested Saturday in Dover, where ferries leave for France.
