Statement following Newport terror arrests by the Metropolitan Police

A message from our Deputy Chief Constable Pam Kelly:

"Following the three arrests made in Newport relating to the Metropolitan Police's on-going investigation of the Parsons Green terrorist attack, I would like to thank the community for their patience and support whilst the investigation continues.

We understand the concern members of the public may feel when activity of this nature occurs in their locality. I would, however like to reassure the public that Gwent Police stands together with partners across Wales and the UK to confront any threat to our communities.

We ask members of the public to be alert, but not alarmed, and to report any suspicious activity by calling us, in confidence, on 0800 789 321, or in an emergency by dialling 999."
