MAN ARRESTED AFTER TWO IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES FOUND IN HARLESDEN FLAT

Two devices were taken away for forensic testing after they were found in an unoccupied flat on Wednesday.

The bombs were found in a flat in Craven Park, Harlesden

A man has been arrested following the discovery of two improvised explosive devices in a northwest London flat.

The 48-year-old was detained in Harlesden on suspicion of an offence contrary to section 4 of the Explosives Substances Act 1883.

He was taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.

It comes after officers were called to the unoccupied address in Craven Park, which was in the process of being refurbished, on Wednesday morning.

The flats were evacuated and nearby roads cordoned off.

The improvised explosive devices were “made safe” and taken away for forensic examinations.

Officers carried out further searches around the flat and decided the area was safe. Residents were later able to return to their homes.
