So for those still scratching their heads over the Brexit vote, take the tube.

The A381 East Street was closed off while police investigated, with residents saying officers warned they would be on the scene for at least six hours.

Police sources say the device was related to the “viable improvised explosive device” found on a Tube train at North Greenwich on Friday night.

“TUBE BOMB: Terror as crude IED found on train fails to explode – MORE attacks expected,” The Express, October 21, 2016:
ARMED anti-terror police were flooding London today amid fears a BOMB found on a Tube train last night was just the first of many.
Officers tasered and arrested a 19-year-old man after a “viable improvised explosive device” was found on a Tube train at North Greenwich.

North Greenwich tube station was evacuated for nearly seven hours after London Underground staff found the suspect package on an eastbound Jubilee Line train.

But experts warned the IED may have been just the first in a co-ordinated attack on the capital.

Armed police swooped on the teenage suspect as he walked down Holloway Road in north London, Tasering him in the street.

One witness claimed officers shouted “armed police, don’t struggle”, as they wrestled him to the floor.

The alarm was raised after a passenger reportedly found the device, described as “a bag full of wires”, on an eastbound Jubilee Line train at North Greenwich station at about 11am.

Bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion.

The suspect teen was taken to a London police station, where he remains in custody.

Witnesses described the suspect as white, bearded, and wearing a hoodie.

Metropolitan Police said a Taser was discharged during the arrest but no shots were fired.

A Ministry of Defence source told The Telegraph it is possible the device was part of a wider terror plot and more attacks may have been planned.

There are increased patrols across London as police desperately try to avoid a deadly terror attack striking the capital.

An MoD insider said: “This increase is in response to the discovery of a suspected viable improvised explosive device (IED) on a London Underground train yesterday.”It is unknown who placed the device and what their motivation was. Therefore it remains possible that the perpetrator may attempt to place further devices. The threat level will continue to be reviewed as further information is received.”A witness, who identified himself only as ‘Ali” told the BBC the suspect was white, had a beard and was wearing a hoodie when officers swamped him as he walked down the street.He said: “The armed police, I think five of them, ran behind him and put him on the floor.

“They were shouting: ‘armed police, don’t struggle’. Everything happened so quick.”

In a statement , the force said: “The 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorism acts, under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

“He has been taken to a London police station where he remains in custody.”

The suspect device is being forensically examined.
