Police are searching a house directly opposite Heathrow airport after a second man was arrested in connection with the Parsons Green terror attack – as it also emerged police allowed the first suspect to slip through their fingers just a fortnight earlier.
A 21-year-old was apprehended in the London borough of Hounslow on Saturday night, amid fears a terror cell was planning a fresh attack on the country.
It came just hours after officers swooped the Port of Dover and arrested an 18-year-old, believed to be an Iraqi refugee who was allegedly arrested two weeks ago at the same tube station where the device exploded on Friday, but was allowed to walk free.
The teenager – who is being held after police tracked him to the departures hall of the coastal town’s port – is thought to have been a ‘problematic foster child’ who was raised in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey, by Penelope Jones, 71, and husband Ronald, 88.
The couple’s home was raided by armed officers on Saturday and a neighbour claiming a bomb was found, although Scotland Yard quashed reports that 15 firearms’ were seized, a neighbour claimed.
Residents on the street said officers had been in the area since Friday night with one neighbour saying: ‘I only had to open the door and I saw police everywhere.’
A local councillor said the teenage suspect came to the UK aged 15 after his parents died in Iraq while a friend of the Joneses said the man’s biological family did not agree with him moving in with Christian foster parents.
The Joneses have raised 268 foster children in the house over three decades and the last eight have been refugees. Eight years ago the kind-hearted couple were awarded MBEs by the Queen for their services to children and families. A family member has confirmed the Joneses are currently ‘safe and well’.
Video footage of the raid shows armed stood outside the lilac-coloured home before one shouts:’Armed police! Come to the front door, now!’
In relation tot the arrest in Hounslow, police have raided a house in Stanwell, Surrey, which directly neighbours Heathrow’s runways.
