Controlled explosions take place as police enquiry into UK bombings continues
Tuesday, July 3, 2007
The terror threat level in the UK remains critical, indicating that an attack could be expected imminently and high security is in evidence on mass transport routes, while the police continue their investigations. Earlier this morning, a controlled explosion took place on a suspicious package discovered outside Hammersmith Station on the London Underground system. The scare led to the closure of Hammersmith and Barons Court stations for one hour.
Sky news reports that three controlled explosions took place on a car outside a mosque in Glasgow, in order to allow police to gain entry to it. The mosque itself is not being linked to the terror attacks.
The police force is continuing its investigations throughout the country, with an open appeal to the country for vigilance in reporting anything suspicious.
