All roads in terrorism investigations seem to lead to Luton.
The five fertiliser bombers convicted on Monday may have been based in Crawley but it was the Bedfordshire town where they made contact with al-Qa’eda.
The July 7 bombers, based in West Yorkshire, met in Luton on the day of the attacks in 2005, abandoning their cars at the station to catch the train south.
Not far north of Luton on the M1 is Toddington service station where, on two occasions 17 months earlier, leaders of the two groups met – watched by MI5.
