We're treating the incidents as a linked series & keeping an open mind regarding motives. Flights at Heathrow & City Airport have not been effected. Train services at Waterloo Station continue to operate. As a precaution, some DLR services were suspended but now fully operational— Metropolitan Police (@metpoliceuk) March 5, 2019
Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism command unit has begun an investigation into the explosive devices which were found at the major transit hubs in London i.e Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo train station.
