She added that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), which sets the terror threat level, had decided "sufficient progress has been made" to lower it.

Asked if police cuts had hit anti-terror operations, she said: "I think it is too simple to approach it like that.

This means an attack is no longer thought to be imminent but is still highly likely".

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

"It is inevitable that so-called Islamic State, or Daesh, will reach in and try and claim responsibility".

Numerous injuries were reported to be burns.

On Saturday morning, police arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with the attack at Dover.

Stanwell is about 15 miles (25 kilometers) southwest of central London, heading toward Heathrow Airport.

The couple, Ronald Jones, 88, and his wife Penelope, 71, who were honoured for services to children and families, are said to be staying with friends following the police raids.

The entire road was evacuated on Saturday while the initial investigations at the property were underway. Residents were allowed to return home Sunday but the Jones' house remains cordoned off.

Prime Minister Theresa May also criticised Trump's comments about the attack as unhelpful.

Trump tweeted on Friday that the bomber was "in the sights of Scotland Yard", a statement that United Kingdom authorities said was not based on any security detail shared with the U.S.

The 21-year-old man was arrested in Hounslow shortly before midnight last night. He is being questioned at a south London police station but has not been charged or identified.

"There was another arrest overnight and two men are in custody". An 18-year-old man was arrested Saturday in Dover, where ferries leave for France.

Her announcement came after two people were arrested in connection with the blast.

The terror threat level has ben downgraded back down to severe after being raised to critical in the wake of the Tube bombing at Parsons Green Tube on Friday.
