Britain records 379 terrorism arrests in 12 months

British Police made 379 arrests for terrorism offences in 12 months, particularly the ones that were linked to the London Bridge, Westminster and Manchester Arena terrorist attacks.
About one-third of those arrested were charged, including 105 people who were accused of terrorism, while 50 per cent of suspects were released without charge, the Home Office reported on Thursday.

The Crown Prosecution Service completed 71 terrorism trials, out of 62 in the previous 12 months, it said.

Following the explosion in May that killed 22 people and injured dozens at the end of a concert in Manchester Arena by U.S. singer Ariana Grande, Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain’s terrorist threat level would remain at the second-highest “severe’’ level.

The government has kept the “severe’’ level, meaning an attack that is “highly likely,’’ for more than two years.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, recently said police nationwide handled an average of about 500 active counter-terrorism investigations involving 3,000 subjects of interest.

Rowley, who is also Britain’s top counter-terrorism officer, told the BBC that the police were investigating an “extraordinary diversity’’ of terrorism cases.

“We’ve got young people who are being radicalised; we’ve got men and women; we’ve got some much older people who are hardened jihadists who’ve been in and out of prison and want to commit attacks again,’’ he told the broadcaster

“You’ve got simple attacks with knives and cars, through to the most sophisticated plots.’’
