"It's never helpful to have speculation about an ongoing operation and I would include the President of the United States in that comment, " said Rudd.

Amber Rudd praised the police for the progress they have made in the investigation and called on the public to remain vigilant after Prime Minister Theresa May put Britain on the highest security level of "critical".
