Asked for the Prime Minister’s reaction to this morning’s terror raids in Birmingham, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that a major counter-terrorism operation had taken place earlier today led by West Midlands Police in which 8 arrests had been made. The Home Secretary was fully briefed on the operation and was receiving regular updates as developments occurred.
Journalists were then referred to a joint statement by the Home Secretary and the Attorney General: "The Home Secretary and the Attorney General would remind the media not to do anything that would prejudice the current operation or future trial."
