The Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism has revealed that British police are making terror-related arrests “on a near daily basis”. Meanwhile, a study estimates the number of “committed Islamists” in the country is “between 6,000 and 10,000”.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolituan Police revealed the scale of the struggle police and security services face to contain terrorism by home grown extremists in a statement to reporters outside New Scotland Yard on Friday.
“I wanted to reassure the public that our increased activity to combat terrorism over the last two years continues,” he said. The statement was made at the end of an “extraordinary day” in which police stopped arrested a migrant walking towards the Houses of Parliament with a rucksack filled with knives on his shoulder. In a separate incident armed officers shot a woman in a niqab in an operation to foil an “active plot” in the London suburb of Willesden.
“Activity continues around the clock to identify and stop these threats,” Basu told the press corps, before admitting that “we are making arrests on a near daily basis”.
Mr. Basu paid tribute “to the bravery of my uniform and detective colleagues”, having previously mentioned to the “horrors in London” on 22 March, when a british born Muslim extremist in an SUV mowed down several people on the crowded walkway of Westminster Bridge, killing several people and injuring many, before stabbing Police Constable Keith Palmer to death.
“There are constant acts of immense bravery by officers, those that the public see when our officers run towards danger, just like yesterday, but a huge amount of unseen work that the public will never know about from us and our brilliant security services.” Basu said.
Meanwhile, the director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, Anthony Glees, has estimated there may be “between 6,000 and 10,000” extremists in Britain.
