THERESA MAY has deployed the ARMY on Britain’s streets amid heightened Terror threats after Today’s ‘bucket bomb’ on the London Underground.
Mrs May announced the UK terror threat level has been raised to “critical” as cops hunt multiple attackers following the blast that injured 29.
The bucket bomber is still on the run amid a manhunt headed by Counter Terror officers and MI5.
ISIS claimed a jihadi “squad” is behind the explosion that sent a “wall of flames” through a packed rush-hour London tube train today.
The Prime Minister said military troops will be patrolling the streets, freeing up 1,000 extra armed police officers to guard stations, events and public places.
In a TV statement, Mrs May announced the threat level has been raised from “severe” to the highest possible rating, meaning another attack is expected.
“The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical – this means their assessment is that a further attack may be imminent,” she said.
“Military personnel will replace police on guard duty at certain protected sites that are not accessible to the public.
“The public will see more armed police on our transport network and streets to provide extra protection.”
The London Tube attack marks the FIFTH Terror Attack on British soil this year.
