Prime Minister, Theresa May, ordered troops onto the streets on Friday night after a suspected Islamist placed a powerful time bomb on a packed rush hour train heading towards Westminster.

The explosion injured passengers and led to a “major incident” being declared.

Images shared online appeared to showed a bucket with wires trailing from it smouldering inside a District Line train.

The device is being forensically examined while detectives are scouring CCTV and examining witness statements for potential leads.
