Theresa May today slammed Donald Trump for speculating publicly about the police investigation into Parsons Green bombing.

The Prime Minister’s intervention came after the Met criticised the tweets about the Parsons Green bomb as ‘unhelpful’ and ‘pure speculation’.

The President claimed in a Twitter rant that officers had the suspect ‘in the sights’ despite Scotland Yard refusing to confirm the details of any man hunt.

Speaking from Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency ‘Cobra’ committee, Mrs May said: ‘I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.’

Mr Trump’s Tweets came at almost exactly the same time as Met Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley gave an initial update on the attack in a TV statement.

Standard police procedure in the aftermath of any terror attack is to keep the identity of any suspects confidential.

A backlash against Mr Trump’s Tweets was growing today as former No 10 chief of staff Nick Timothy slammed the messages and senior MPs warned it could undermine the police investigation.

Theresa May publicly rebuked the US administration after the Manchester bombing when shared intelligence was released to American media.
