A poster from ISIS was released less than 24 hours after a series of firebombs were sent to transport hot spots across the capital. The image, which was shared across social media, displays the words “we will kill you”. Writing across the picture, which depicts some of London’s skyscrapers in Canary Wharf, also said: “Your crimes will not be unpunished.”
According to the Daily Mirror, the New IRA had been responsible for the sending of packages throughout London.
Items were sent to Waterloo train station and buildings around Heathrow Airport and London City Airport.
Also seen in the poster are suspicious packages.
Yesterday, police found A4-sized white postal bags, which contained yellow jiffy bags.
Police said that the items were capable of igniting a small fire when opened.
At the time, Scotland Yard said it was working hard to “ensure the safety of the public and staff working at transport hubs and mail sorting offices”.
It added: “We have shared images of the exterior packaging of two of the devices to aid staff in identifying a potentially suspicious package.”
London Waterloo is the busiest station in the UK, with 94 million customers in 2017/18.
Police were also called to a report of a suspicious package at City Aviation House at London City Airport at 12.15pm.
Transport Secretary Chris Grayling tweeted: “Police are investigating a small number of security alerts.
“If you’re travelling and see anything suspicious, please report it to the police by calling 0800 789 321 or visit https://act.campaign.gov.uk #ActionCountersTerrorism.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan added on the social media site: “The Met Police UK Counter Terrorism Command has launched an investigation after three suspicious packages were found at locations in London.
“Our thanks go to police, security, transport staff and all involved for their swift actions to keep our city safe.”
