London terror attack: Armed officers raid flat in Birmingham, seven arrested

Armed officers raided a flat in Birmingham on Thursday and made seven arrests in an investigation linked to the London terror attack, according to media reports.

According to a report in the Mirror, the police cordoned off an apartment on Hagley Road, in Edgbaston, for several hours on Thursday night around 10:30 pm. Uniformed policemen remained at the scene throughout the night and the roads were reopened at 1:30 am.

Sky News reported that a number of people had been arrested at the property. According to a witness, dozens of officers were pictured outside the second floor flat above a parade of shops which was cordoned off by police, Sky News reported.

Five people were killed and about 40 injured on Wednesday when a knife-wielding man went on a deadly rampage in the heart of Britain's seat of power,  plowing a car into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer to death inside the gates of Parliament.

Prime Minister Theresa May condemned as a "sick and depraved terrorist attack" and said the UK's terror threat level would remain at severe.
