He is understood to have 90 per cent burns and is under police guard*.Witnesses said that there is currently a 200-metre cordon around the hospital.
Anti-terror officers from the Met and West Midlands Police later arrested a further two people on the M6 in connection with all the attacks, Scotland Yard said.
A 26-year-old man has also been arrested in Liverpool in connection with the national terror alert.
It is understood that police used a taser gun on this man and that two addresses are being searched in Liverpool. (Daily Mail)
Well it seems there can be some good news in a story about terrorism. The revelation that there have been further arrests in relation to this latest bombing campaign certainly is good news. As is the news that one of Glasgow’s would be bombers has burns to 90% of his body. People with such extensive burns seldom survive their injuries and usually have a slow and very painful death, usually succumbing to shock and infection. It could not happen to a nicer bloke now could it?
