Terror bust up North... and Bob Quick

#1
Bugger. Might have to go up North.

Apparently a whole load of Asians have been picked up for terrorist offences.

According to C4 News, the arrests were brought forward because Bob Quick walked into Downing St. holding a memo about the operation in plain sight...which was then photographed by a journo. 8O

MI5 were involved in the operation and, according to C4, are not best pleased with Mr Quick. :twisted:

I'm in the crew room. I've just been told by OPs that it's 'up north'... which narrows it down not at all.

"BRITISH police arrested 10 people in anti-terror raids in northwest England overnight, a spokesman said, in what reports said was a major operation.

The raids were mounted in locations including Liverpool University, according to BBC television, while Sky News reported the raids were part of a long-planned operation which may have been brought forward by events.

"Ten men have been arrested as part of a counter terrorism operation across the northwest of England," said a Greater Manchester Police spokesman, adding: "A number of addresses ... are currently being searched."

Britain has been on high alert since July 2005 suicide attacks in London killed 56, while car bomb attacks were foiled in London and Glasgow in June 2007.

Greater Manchester Police declined to give any more details, as reports suggested raids were ongoing, but said more information could be released within the next few hours."

2 arrests were at Liverpool John Moores Uni, where I attend.

They were arrested outside of the central library, not to far from the city centre.

Not good for a student at LJMU...

Extracts:

"Ten men, suspected of links to al Qaeda, have been arrested as part of a counter-terrorism operation across the North West of England.
The 10 suspects are believed to be British men of Asian origin."

"Officers from the North West Counter-Terrorism Unit supported by Merseyside Police, Greater Manchester Police and Lancashire Constabulary conducted a series of raids."

"Arrests were made at addresses in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, Liverpool John Moores University and Clitheroe in Lancashire."

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt reportedly said: "Everybody I've talked to is suggesting this is one of the biggest terror plots unearthed in the past few years."

"I think we're talking about a threat or threats to the UK."

"Some kind of terror plot aimed at buildings or people in this country, rather than people planning terror abroad, which has been the picture of more recent terror arrests."
