Parsons Green Attack: Second Man Arrested In Connection With Rush Hour Bomb

The Islamic State group has said it was behind the bomb, which was detonated at 08:20 BST at Parsons Green station.

The Parsons Green station in southwest London reopened at 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, more than 17 hours after the explosion.

Britain is now on the highest terror alert, "critical", meaning another attack is expected imminently, and a manhunt is under way for multiple suspects after police scoured District Line CCTV.

The UK has witnessed a series of attacks this year, with the bombing of a concert in Manchester in May, a stabbing spree around the London Bridge area in June and a March attack in which a man drove a vehicle into crowds on Westminster Bridge.

The suspect was arrested in port city of Dover on Saturday, police said.

Troops have been dispatched to key sites across the country to free up armed police officers after the country's terror threat level was raised to its highest point.

The attack was the latest in a series in terror attacks in London this year, including the Westminster Bridge attack in March, and the London Bridge attack in April.

"Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, has declared it a terrorist incident", the police said. "The public should remain vigilant as our staff, officers and partners".

The London Ambulance Service said none of the injuries commuters sustained were serious or life-threatening.

As of last night, detectives had spoken to 45 witnesses and were continuing to receive information from the public to the confidential anti-terrorist hotline. The Times reported it was a nail bomb.
