Home Secretary "worried" about further attacks

Following a meeting with Sir Ian Blair, the Chief Commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police, Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary praised the work of the force and said the professionalism of the police was being applauded all around the world. The Home Secretary said he was still “worried” about further attacks, a sentiment echoed by the Chief Commissioner who said that after the attacks of 7th and 21st July, an attack was “More rather than less likely”. The Monday afternoon meeting also dealt with possible deportations of individuals such as Abu Qatada, a radical cleric, widely seen as having possible terror connections.
