Last quote by Mark Rowley

If part of the terrorist methodology is to prey on the vulnerable ... then it stands to reason that there will be people with certain mental health conditions who will be ... susceptible to that. Radicalizing and inciting someone who is vulnerable to go and carry out some ghastly attack seems to be part of their tactics, and that has brought in a whole load of vulnerability issues, including mental health, that we now have to wrestle

The public will be aware of the arrest that's been made and the searches that are ongoing and there's more work of that type that we're continuing at the moment.

However she left that apartment, she has been abducted. It is not a 20-year-old who has gone missing and who has made a decision to start a new life, this is a young girl who is missing and at the heart of this has been an abduction. As detectives, we will always be extremely disappointed when we are unable to provide an explanation of what happened. However, the work carried out by Portuguese and Met officers in reviewing material and reopening the investigation has been successful in taking a number of lines of interest to their conclusion. That work has provided important

Apr 25 2017

There are critical lines of enquiry of great interest to ourselves and our Portuguese counterparts, and there are some significant investigative avenues we are pursuing that we see as very worthwhile. So, one of the lines of enquiry, one of the hypotheses was: could this be a burglary gone wrong? Someone is doing a burglary, panicked maybe by a waking child, which leads to Madeleine going

Apr 25 2017 - Scottish independence

As an investigation team we are only too aware of the significance of dates and anniversaries. Whatever the inquiry, we want to get answers for everyone involved. The disappearance of Madeleine McCann is no different in that respect but of course the circumstances and the huge public interest, make this a unique case for us as police officers to deal

Apr 25 2017 - Scottish independence

In a missing child inquiry every day is agony and an anniversary brings this into sharp focus. Our thoughts are with Madeleine's family at this time - as it is with any family in a missing person's inquiry - and that drives our commitment to do everything we can for

Apr 25 2017 - Scottish independence

Our mission here is to do everything reasonable to provide an answer for Kate and Gerry McCann. I'd love to guarantee that we will get to an answer, sadly investigations can never be 100 percent successful, but we will do everything we can do reasonably to find an answer to what has happened to Madeleine. We solve more than 90 per cent of serious cases here at Scotland Yard. I so wish I could say we will definitely solve it, but a small number of cases sadly don't get

We've seized 2,700 items from these searches, including massive amounts of computer data for us to work through. We've received hundreds of uploads of video images to our online platform.

My team will work with Parliamentary authorities to assess whether a different tone or a different balance is

Mar 24 2017 - Scottish independence

Our investigation focuses on understanding his motivation, his operation and his associates. Whilst there is still no evidence of further threats, you'll understand our determination is to find out if either he acted totally alone, inspired perhaps by terrorist propaganda, or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him. We now have nine people remaining in custody, and one woman has been released on

Mar 24 2017

We've seized 2,700 items from these searches, including massive amounts of computer data for us to work through. We've received hundreds of uploads of video images to our online platform. Given this attack was in the heart of the capital we also, of course, are dealing with statements from a wide range of nationalities. Those affected include a real cross-section of ages from at least 12 nationalities. It's a poignant reminder, I think, that the impact of this attack on the capital will reach around the

Mar 23 2017 - 2017 UK Parliament attack

Mar 23 2017 - Women

We are still collating numbers of walking wounded and of those in the hospital sadly seven of them are in a critical condition. Tragically the deaths included PC Keith Palmer who was protecting Parliament and two members of the public – a woman aged in her mid 40's and a man aged in his mid 50's. We must not allow terrorists to create discord, distrust and

Mar 22 2017 - 2017 UK Parliament attack

One of those who died today was one of our police officers, PC Keith Palmer. Keith was 48 years old with 15 years service, a husband and father.

I can also now confirm that there are three members of the public who have lost their lives in the

Mar 22 2017 - Terrorism

Mar 06 2017 - Syria conflict

The military progress squeezing the territory of Isis... I see that as good news but we mustn't assume that the terrorist threat is simply about Isis or simply about what's happening in Syria. Al-Qaida remain a threat and there are offshoots of both organisations. The military success is welcome but in and of itself it's not going to eradicate the terrorist

Mar 06 2017 - Daesh

Mar 06 2017 - Daesh

Some of them have been more sophisticated planning looking to attack public spaces, or police offices or the military, not that dissimilar to some of the attacks we have seen in Belgium and France and elsewhere. There is a whole range from the simple to the complicated. Sometimes reporting oversimplifies things and says terrorism is about IS [Islamic State] or Daesh and it's about Syria. Actually there are many Isis offshoots in other parts of world, al-Qaida is still very, very

Mar 06 2017

And of course in the UK … extreme rightwing groups are very provocative and can cause significant risk to our communities, and indeed there are extreme rightwing-related issues which led to the tragic murder of Jo Cox. This threat is going to continue in different forms and it going to keep metamorphosing. The reason for this appeal is to say to the public: 'Trust your instinct, we are already getting lots of information on a third of our cases, look at our website, listen to these adverts, and if you pick up anything at all suspicious don't be cautious please

Nov 01 2016 - Terrorism

You do get gang members, criminals, people who are already angry, violent, difficult people causing problems in communities, who perhaps get given a clearer purpose for their violence by a terrorist ideology, whether they pick that up on the streets or in prison. Those gang criminality links are an issue that concerns us. We have seen evidence of it potentially linking firearms into

All of the work that we have done so far increasingly point the tragic incident as having been triggered by mental issues. At this time we believe this spontaneous attack and the victims are selected at randomly. I stress that all the work that we have done so far does not suggest these factors and his background are not relevant to the motivation for his
