Last quote by Mark Rowley

Once we get past the weekend, we will be looking to step down the extra resources we have had in place over the last week. And the military support we have had in place over the past few days, under Operation Temperer, we will start to phase out as well.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Mark Rowley is associated, including London, Metropolitan Police Service, and motive. Most recently, Mark Rowley has been quoted saying: “We are getting a greater understanding of the preparation of the bomb. This greater clarity and this progress has led (the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre) – the independent body that assess threat – to come to the judgment that an attack is no longer imminent.” in the article Britain’s terror threat level reduced to ‘severe’ after raids linked to Manchester bombing.

Mark Rowley quotes

We've got some critical lines of inquiry, those link to particular hypotheses, but I'm not going to discuss those because those are very much live investigation.feedback

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 answers.feedback

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 missing.feedback

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 with.feedback

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 her.feedback

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 solved.feedback

We remain keen to hear from anyone who knew Khalid Masood well, understands who his associates were, and can provide us with information about places he has recently visited. There might well be people out there who did have concerns about Masood but weren't sure or didn't feel comfortable for whatever reason in passing information to us.feedback

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

Our investigation focusses on understanding his motivation, his preparation and his associates. Clearly a main line of our investigation is what led him to be radicalised? Was it through influences in our community, influences overseas or through online propaganda? Our investigations and arrests will help with that.feedback

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

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 bail.feedback

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 world.feedback

We remain keen to hear from anyone who knew Khalid Masood well, understands who his associates were and can provide us with information about places he has recently visited. There might be people out there who did have concerns about Masood but did not feel comfortable for whatever reason in passing those concerns to us.feedback

To that end in our continuing investigation and ongoing covert activity we have made further significant arrests overnight - in the West Midlands and north west.feedback

Our working assumption is that he was inspired by international terrorism.feedback

It is still our belief, which continues to be borne out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism. Clearly the investigation is ongoing and developing all the time and we continue to focus on his motivation, his preparation and his associates.feedback

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 fear.feedback

Clearly our investigation is ongoing … and is focused on his motivation, his preparation and associates.feedback

This is a day that we had planned for – that we all hoped would never happen – but sadly it is now a reality.feedback

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. He was someone that left for work expecting to return home at the end of his shift and he had ever right to expect that would happen. I can also now confirm that there are three members of the public who have lost their lives in the attack.feedback

We are satisfied at this stage that it looks like there was only one attacker. But it would be foolish to be overconfident early on.feedback

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 problem.feedback

It would be wrong to suggest it was of the same gravity as the threat from Daesh and Al-Qaida, but there are extreme right-wing groups who are trying to provoke violence in communities, trying to sow discord and divide communities and on occasion using violence.feedback

We are likely to face a severe threat for sometime to come. And we need the missing piece in the jigsaw in the investigations we are running that often the public have.feedback

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 significant.feedback

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 us.feedback

The majority (of our work) is actually people in this country who are radicalized. Sometimes they are in contact with people overseas and they are looking to radicalize others in this country and potentially conduct attacks.feedback

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 terrorism.feedback

We should be proud of them and the British tradition of using the minimum necessary force.feedback

Early indications suggest that mental health is a significant factor in this case and that is one major line of inquiry.feedback

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 action.feedback

Anyone who's been following events in Europe over the past few weeks will understand why we want to show our determination to protect the public. We are deadly serious about the protection that we are offering the people of London and we will never be complacent.feedback

In London specifically, the Metropolitan Police Service has mobilised additional officers, who will carry out highly visible patrols at key locations around the capital including the transport network.feedback

Both sides of the investigation are at relatively early stages, with much work remaining to be done.feedback
