One jihadist taken down, only 22,999 left to go!
Britain is finally making progress in the fight against terrorism!
Police have foiled a suspected bomb plot inspired by Islamic State in the run up to Christmas, it emerged yesterday.
More than a hundred officers swooped on a quiet cul-de-sac in Newcastle upon Tyne yesterday to arrest an alleged lone wolf plotter said to be under the spell of the terror group.
Fearing that explosives may be present, more than 150 houses were evacuated as well as a school when elite counter-terrorism officers raided an address in the Arthur’s Hill area of the city less than a mile from St James’s Park football stadium and the Eldon Square shopping centre.
Dozens of locals were taken to a community centre while searches were carried out at the suspect’s property for any explosives or weapons.
A 33-year-old man was arrested at the property on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Neighbours described the man who was living at the address as an Asian man in his 30s, but said they knew little about him.
