News video: 'Foster parents' home searched in London bomb probe

Police probing the bomb attack on the London underground have been searching a home said to belong to foster parents who had taken in child refugees.

Neighbours were evacuated during Saturday’s search in Sunbury-on-Thames, southwest of the British capital.

Press reports said the house belongs to elderly couple Ronald and Penelope Jones, who have been honoured by Queen Elizabeth for services to children and families.

“At this stage, we’re keeping an open mind around whether more than one person is responsible for the attack and we are still pursuing numerous lines of inquiry and at great pace,” Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu told reporters.

On Saturday morning, an 18-year-old man was arrested in the departure lounge of the southeastern ferry port of Dover, from which passenger ships sail to France.

He is being questioned on suspicion of a terror offence in connection with the home-made device that partially detonated on a Tube train on Friday, injuring 30 people.

As a result, armed police have been patrolling in London, protecting government departments and key sporting events.

Prime Minister Theresa May has said the public should not be alarmed by armed officers on the streets, a rare sight in Britain. with Reuters .
