To be more specific, FIVE houses in the Leeds area.

The police theory is that a group went from Leeds to Kings Cross station on the train, then went home on the train afterwards.

They are expecting to make arrests later today.

These raids are being classed as 'significant'.

They were family houses. British nationals (of Pakistani origins) are being questioned.

No arrests as yet, and it is possible that the suspects were not at the scene but still at large in the north of England, and so it could be that their family members are the ones being questioned.

Airports on alert to find them.

Lets hope these people are the right ones and are caught.

The raids this morning have had a computer taken away. One of the cars outside one of the homes this morning is "very important" to the investigation, but will not comment on it.

Good, I hope some real progress is being made in the investigation


We can't let these people roam freely to attack again.

Update:

500-600 evacuated from homes.
Search is still on going at that house. Police and army still in the house aswell. Apparently the "owners" are not there and local people have stated the family had numerous busineses in the area. We are starting to believe this is domestic, but still could of had help abroad with the explosives.

Latest update - the house was empty.

Earlier controlled explosion at another house was to gain access to a house
