LONDON – Police have arrested a second man as part of the investigation into the Parsons Green terror attack on Friday.
A 21-year-old man was arrested at 11.50 PM on Saturday night in Hounslow, west London, Metropolitan Police said in a statement on Sunday.
It comes after the arrest of an 18-year-old man in Dover, in the departure area of the port.
On Friday, a improvised explosive detonated on the London Underground at Parsons Green tube stop, injuring 30 people.
The 21-year-old man remains in custody in a South London police station, the Met said. It did not provide any further details on the man’s identity or potential connection to the attack.
On Saturday, police also evacuated a house in Sudbury-on-Thames, a town in Surrey, England, as well as the surrounding buildings as a “precautionary measure.”
The UK’s terror threat level has been raised to “critical,” and Prime Minister Theresa May said that the device was “intended to cause serious harm.” The Times reported it was a nail bomb.
