British Transport Police cancelled leave and called in extra officers after intelligence was received that terrorists could be planning attacks.

A security source said there was no “imminent” threat and the overall threat level had not changed but there was activity from one of a “handful” of extremist cells that cause concern at any time, leading to an adjustment in policing levels.

It is understood that “intelligence chatter” suggested that transport hubs in London could be a target.

It was unclear last night whether the terrorists were discussing suicide bomb attacks, or Mumbai-style shootings, or a combination of methods.

A Whitehall source said: “The assessment of the threat to transport hubs has been revised. The view is that there is a greater risk than before, so steps are being taken as a precaution.”

There have been two serious terrorist plots in the last few weeks that have been linked to Britain.

On December 11 a suicide bomber blew himself up in Stockholm, Sweden while heading towards the central train station.

In Copenhagen, Denmark, last week, police arrested three men with a submachine gun, silencer and ammunition who were allegedly planning a Mumbai-style shooting spree.

Both plots had links to Britain – the Stockholm bomber, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, had been living in Luton, while the alleged Danish terrorist cell had links to a network in Derby, the Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday.

  1. The queen going barefoot to some mosque on the Arabian Peninsula, with William Hague’s wife looking like a penguin with a broken neck in tow (thanks to her Halloween coastume, I mean, the mobile tent she was wearing), sharia courts on British soil, granting the Nazistinian arabs’ office in Londonistan diplomatic status, wholesale imposition of halal food on everyone, David Cameron demanding that Turkey be given full EU membership… And that’s how mahoundians thank the UK for all that appeasement.

  2. The Moslems are like the Russians, with them you are either the master or the slave, they think our empathy is weakness and are attacking so they can take over from the weak.
