'Pure speculation': British Home Sec dismisses Trump's Parsons Green tweets

The Home Secretary said the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), which determines the terror threat level, had decided that "sufficient progress" has been made in the Parsons Green investigation to lower the threat.

The "severe" threat level now in place means officials believe another attack is highly likely.

Following the bombing of a London tube train at Parsons Green station on Friday, the terror threat level was increased from severe to critical.

Police said they are searching a residential address in Stanwell, Surrey, in conjunction with this arrest.

Ms Rudd today said that it seemed the Parsons Green bomber was not a lone wolf, but added: "It's too early to reach any final conclusions on that".

Five hours later, armed police raided a home in posh Sunbury-on-Thames that belongs to the Jones couple, who received an MBE in 2009 for fostering hundreds of kids.

Britain's National Health Service says all but one of the people wounded in the subway bombing attack have been released from the hospital.

Ronald Jones, 88, and his wife Penelope Jones, 71, have been honored by Queen Elizabeth II for their work with children in need of a stable home.

Friend Alison Griffiths said the couple had an 18-year-old and a 22-year-old staying with them recently.

Asked about Donald Trump's tweets on the attack, Ms Rudd joined the chorus of criticism, saying: "It's never helpful to have speculation about an ongoing investigation and I would include the President of the United States in that".

Rudd made the comments on BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, after Trump claimed the person who carried out the attack was known to British police.

On Sunday, Scotland Yard said that a 21-year-old man had been arrested in Hounslow, south-west London, shortly before midnight.

On Saturday morning, police arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with the attack at Dover.
