The video, obtained by the Press Association, shows a figure dressed in grey carrying a distinctive white Lidl carrier bag around 80 minutes before the explosion that injured 29 people.

Mr Haydon said: "This continues to be a fast-moving investigation".

Over the weekend, two other suspects - an 18-year-old man and 21-year-old man - were detained in connection with the tube attack and remain in custody.

Police on Monday revealed the identity of one of the two suspects arrested in connection with the terror attack on a London Tube train that left 30 people injured, authorities said.

"There is still much more to do but this greater clarity and this progress has led JTACt, he independent body that assesses threat, to come to the judgement that an attack is no longer imminent", said Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, the UKs National Lead for Counter-Terrorism Policing.


The raid was carried out by the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command, assisted by Gwent Police and the Welsh Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit (WECTU) and an address in the town was being searched on Tuesday night.

Scotland Yard confirm that the 25-year-old man was arrested in Newport in Wales. The couple's Surrey house was raided on Saturday. The man was seen on camera leaving a house which police later searched.

A second suspect, Yahyah Farroukh, 21, from Syria, was arrested just hours later outside the chicken shop where he worked in Hounslow, west London.

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 is being questioned at a south London police station but has not been charged or identified.
