Newspaper headlines: Focus on Westminster terror arrest

  • 27 April 2017
Image caption Photographs showing the arrest of a man near the Houses of Parliament on suspicion of terrorism offences feature across the front pages. Knives spilled across the pavement as the suspect was bundled to the group by armed police in front of frightened onlookers, says Metro.
Image caption The i says the "dramatic arrest" by armed officers took place just yards from the scene of the attack in March on Westminster Bridge and at the Houses of Parliament.
Image caption The Daily Express says police foiled a second attack. They said the suspect was carrying a "backpack full of knives" when he was held.
Image caption The Daily Mail describes the events as a "new Westminster terror alert". "Just a month after the terror atrocity that claimed five lives, armed police swooped on the suspected Islamist extremist as he crossed Whitehall," it reports.
Image caption The Daily Telegraph says the suspect was heading towards Downing Street. Quoting security sources, the paper says the "lone wolf" had been under close surveillance when counter-terrorism officers ordered his detention as he came close to its security gates.
Image caption The Guardian reports the arrest followed a tip-off from someone who knew the suspect and was "concerned" about his behaviour. Officers were lying in wait after police and MI5 officers tracked his movements as he travelled into central London, the paper adds.
Image caption "Knife one lads," is the headline in the Sun. Alongside a photo of the suspect being detained by two officers, it carries a close-up image of one of the weapons he was said to have been carrying.
Image caption The Daily Star describes the suspect as a "wannabe jihadi".
Image caption The Times questions how the suspect was able to reach the heart of Westminster despite apparently being monitored. Its lead story reports a call by the head of children's' charity the NSPCC for social media companies to be fined if they fail to do enough to shield youngsters from pornography, self-harm and bullying online.
Image caption A photograph of the Westminster arrest also features on the front of the Daily Mirror. Its lead story, however, is on a letter to the prime minister from more than 500 head teachers in England warning that schools face being crippled by real-terms cuts to their budgets.
Image caption The Financial Times reports European leaders are preparing to recognise the potential for a united Ireland within the EU. It says the move may stoke concerns about a possible post-Brexit break-up of the UK.
