Rudd made the comments on BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, after Trump claimed the person who carried out the attack was known to British police.

Prime Minister Theresa May has raised the threat level to critical, meaning another attack is expected imminently.

A second man has been arrested by detectives investigating the terrorist attack at Parsons Green station on Friday.

"The Joint Terrorist Analysis Center, which reviews the threat level that the United Kingdom is under has made a decision to lower that level from "critical" to "severe", Rudd said in an interview with the BBC broadcaster". And you will have heard consequently the Home Secretary's announcement that the threat level has reduced from Critical to Severe which of course means that an attack is highly likely."Members of the public will be wondering what that means in terms of their travel into work tomorrow".

"He was arrested on the suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism", Deputy Assistant Police Commissioner Neil Basu said at a Saturday news conference.


On Saturday an 18-year-old man was arrested in connection with the bombing on suspicion of a terror offence.

Police later revealed that a number of items were found during a search in the Dover area, and that the city's port was partially evacuated during the arrest.

Hours after the arrest, armed police carried out an operation at a residential address in Surrey, south west of London, in connection to the attack probe.

Of the 30 people injured in the bombing, all but one have been discharged from hospital.
