Parsons Green: man arrested over Tube bombing

An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of a terror offence in connection with Friday’s attack on a London Tube train, BBC reports.

The man was held in Dover on Saturday and taken to a Kent police station – he will be moved to south London later. The arrest is “significant” but the terror threat level remains at “critical”, Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said.

Thirty people were injured after the explosion on a train at Parsons Green. Most people were treated for minor injuries and have been released, NHS England said, but three people remain in Chelsea and Westminster hospital in central London.

A further meeting of the government’s Cobra emergency committee, chaired by Home Secretary Amber Rudd, ended with the recommendation that the UK terrorist threat level remains at “critical”.
