The Met is the beating heart of the UK's counterterrorism
network, but today, a reality check from a former boss.
There just are not enough resources, and there could never be enough
resources to cover everybody inevitably, and I do think
the Government is completely right to raise the situation to critical,
because he cannot have done this alone.
So what exactly is the size of the threat facing the police
We are told around 3,500 people are of interest in the UK.
Among them will be the 200 or so Londoners who have
been to Syria to fight and have now returned.
We're also told there are around 500 live counterterrorism investigations
Many of those will be in and around London.

found an explosive device filled with nails and nuts
Then, another plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange.
And in 2012, a plan to attach an explosive to a remote-controlled
car and target the Territorial Army centre in Newton was also foiled.
I think we have some of the best police services
in the world and they really respect our capability.
It is a capability that has got better with time and should carry
It has some of the most talented people in the country doing
But the Manchester suicide bomber was reported to the authorities.
Once again, the question of resources and which suspects
to concentrate on has been brought into focus.
Well, the controversial Government strategy aimed at stopping people
from becoming terrorists is called Prevent.
It's controversial because some communities feel it

Not talking to people as much as they used to,
a different atmosphere in their tone, their
Even the small things make differences.
The 17-year-old says it is just a matter of speaking
to people in everyday life, counteracting the tactics groups
We use the same tactics, get to those people who are vulnerable,
get them in a safe space where they can speak to us and let
go of those emotions and make sure those emotions don't stay in them
and doesn't end up turning into something detrimental to themselves
This is part of a charity that tries to stop the spread of extremism.
This man used to work with the Government's Prevent
strategy, which tries to stop people getting into terrorism,
Our focus has now moved from intense, effective work
We need a team that can speak to the experts
who know what the hell is going on to tackle the problem.
It is no secret, this strategy has been controversial.
But the Government says it has reached hundreds of thousands
of people and stopped many others travelling to places
But hundreds across the UK have still been radicalised,
including the three Bethnal Green schoolgirls, Jihadi
As for Iram, she says she will continue to keep her eyes
and ears open in the hope of making a difference in her community.

This is now a massive challenge for the police and security services.
The Met Police know of 3000 people who are of interest to them, they
cannot follow every lead, they have to prioritise. Counterterrorism
teams are making at least one arrest a day, and an act which have been
told that they have arrested a 64-year-old man at an address in
north London, following the arrest of a 37-year-old man attempting to
board a flight to Turkey on Tuesday at Stanstead Airport. These arrests
are not, police insist, in connection to the Manchester
incident, it is about travel to Syria, but both men are being held
on suspicion of preparing for acts of terrorism. Also British Transport
Police have begun deploying armed officers on the national rail
network. This is the first time in its history, the first patrol teams
were seen at Euston Station earlier today. They say it is in response to
the critical threat level that the country currently has. Armed
officers have been patrolling on the London Underground since December.

Advice to keep your eyes off your mobile phone
because of nearby mopeds has been issued by police in London.
It comes after the number of mopeds stolen has rocked in the past year,
with most of them being used to carry out further crimes.
The opportunists look for unsuspecting pedestrians,
who then have valuables snatched out of their hands.
They are fearless and they are aggressive.
London's thieves are using stolen mopeds more than ever,
and it is our mobiles they are mostly after.
Here in Islington last week, 31 phones were stolen in a single hour.
In just five minutes, we found two people it had happened to.
There was one guy driving and one guy on the back.
Just took it out of my hand, split second, didn't
Your phone just disappears out of your hand and you kind
of realise what happened, and then you beat yourself up,
Think about chasing after him, probably don't.
But police say we are still walking around with our phones in full view.
We go up to them and they say, "We have already had them stolen
And we say, "Wow, you are still doing it!"
What they say, they know somebody who has had their phone stolen
In the past year 15,000 scooters have been stolen.
They are then used to commit more crime.
The man fighting this theft wants us to know just how
In under 20 seconds he showed us how to steal one.
The bike like this without a lock on the back wheel, you can just grab
We can't show you any more of that, sorry.
But what we can show you is how to keep your mopeds safer.
The way to do it is put a big chain through the back wheel and put
When it's at home, put a big hook into the concrete.
This is one of 22 stolen every day, and the police say they only solve
about 5% of the crimes associated with mopeds.
With annual train tickets costing several thousand pounds, but a
second-hand mopeds around 700, many people are choosing the cheaper
option. London needs to bricks and habits to stay safe.
It is getting a little bit uncomfortable for some of us, and it
is getting hotter. It got up to 27 degrees today. Not an awful lot
happening, clear sky. In the sunshine the temperatures
will be shooting up. We could even get to 29 degrees. On
Saturday there is a change. We anticipate a few storms from the
south. Quite often they bring fresh weather, but not on this occasion.
There will be slightly fresher weather as we head into next week.
You would expect strong sunshine at this time of year, but it has been
stronger than you would normally expect, and that continues tomorrow.
It has been the hottest day of the year so far. I suspect we might beat
