UK security services have 676 ‘live’ terror investigations ongoing
In the wake of this morning’s terror attack in Westminster, it has emerged that the security services are conducting a staggering 676 ‘live’ terrorism investigations and have foiled 13 plots over the past 18 months alone.
Evidence of the scale of the threat to the UK came as Theresa May urged the public to be ‘vigilant’ and defy the extremists.
In a statement after the suspected terror attack at Westminster, when a man in a Ford Fiesta mowed down cyclists before crashing into barriers around Parliament, the Prime Minister said the incident was’shocking’.
‘The threat to the United Kingdom from terrorism remains severe. I would urge the public to remain vigilant – but also to come together and carry on as normal, just as they did after the sickening attacks in Manchester and London last year,’ she said.

The PM’s spokesman said that over the past 18 months 17 terrorist plots had been foiled. There are 676 live terrorism investigations in progress, he said. The previous figure given in March was that there were ‘over 500’.
Part of the reason for the increase is undoubtedly the continued return ‘home’ of ISIS fighters defeated by Syrian, Russian and pro-Iranian forces in the Middle East. Unfortunately, the government will clearly take no action to stop this lunacy until more of these monsters kill many more innocent people as fighters from the Libyan conflict did at the Manchester Arena bombing.
