"Although we are pleased with the progress made, this investigation continues and the threat level remains at critical", Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism Policing Neil Basu said.

A white plastic container caused a fire on a packed rush-hour carriage at Parsons Green subway station.

At least 29 people were injured Friday in the explosion of a homemade bomb during the morning rush hour inside a crowded Underground train in London.

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.

In what authorities called a "very significant" development, officers arrested a man at about 7.50 a.m. (0650 GMT) in Dover, from where passenger ferries sail to France.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said police were "chasing down suspects" over the attack.

FOLLOWING yesterday's terrorist attack in London the threat level has been raised to critical across England, Scotland and Wales.

Police on Saturday launched a massive armed search in the southwestern London suburb of Sunbury. "Our city condemns the disgusting individuals who attempt to use terror to harm us and destroy our way of life", said London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has raised Britain's terrorism threat level from "severe" to "critical", meaning an attack is expected imminently, on fears that whoever was behind the attack, and the materials used to make the device, were unaccounted for.

The Islamic State group said an IS detachment had been behind the bombing.

Soldiers were deployed to key locations on the streets of the capital Friday, to free up police in the manhunt for the suspect.

An injured woman is led away after the terrorist attack at Parsons Green underground station in London, Britain, September 15, 2017.

Police further reported speaking to 45 witnesses and that they were continuing to gather information.

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom threat level remains at critical; meaning an attack may be imminent at any time.
