Politiaksjonen mot boligen i Surrey er en del av en større aksjon for å finne frem til flere gjerningsmenn bak bomben på T-banen i London fredag morgen. Boligen tilhører et ektepar som har mottatt dronningens fortjenstmedalje for å ha fostret 268 barn.

Naboene fortalte til avisen The Sun at ekteparet hadde begynt å ta imot fosterbarn igjen for å hjelpe flyktninger fra Syria og andre steder.

The home is believed to belong to Penelope and Ronald Jones, who have been honoured by the Queen after taking care of 268 foster children.

It is not known if any of the children still live at the address, but neighbours told The Sun that the couple, who have six children of their own, had started taking foster children again after seeing the plight of refugees displaced from Syria and elsewhere.

Tenåringen som ble arrestert i forbindelse med bomben på T-banen, hadde vært et «problematisk fosterbarn», ifølge naboene. Serena Barber forteller at attenåringen ble arrestert av politiet på Parsons Green for to uker siden.

Serena Barber, 47, who has known the couple all her life and lives in a property backing on to theirs, said:

»All I know is that they have two boys at the moment, both are foreign.

»One is very quiet and polite, the other who is 18 is awful.

«He kept getting in trouble with the police and they didn’t know what to do with him.

»I know about two weeks ago he was arrested by police at Parsons Green, for what I don’t know and returned back to Penny and Ron.

»After that Penny said she was going to have to stop caring for him, she couldn’t handle him.»

Det var risiko for å finne bomber, og et større område ble evakuert. Folk fikk ett minutt på seg:

Mojgan Jamali, who lives in the road affected and has three children, said: “They told me to leave. They said ‘you have got one minute to get out to the house and get away’.

Bomben på T-banen kunne ha drept hundrevis hvis den hadde detonert etter planen, sa eksperter tidligere i dag.
