Police recover number of items after Dover terror arrest



Police say a number of items have been recovered at the port of Dover following the arrest of a teenager over the Parsons Green bombing.

Thirty people were injured during London's Friday morning rush hour when an improvised explosive device detonated on a Tube train.


Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said that officers had to partially evacuate the port of Dover after a manhunt led them to arresting an 18-year-old who was in the departure area.


A precautionary search of the area following the "significant" arrest turned up "a number of items" said Mr Basu.


The 18-year-old was arrested "on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism".
