A former counter-terrorism detective has told Sputnik the individual who struck a London Underground tube at Parsons Green station on Friday was no amateur – and wants to carry out more attacks.

Speaking to Sputnik in the wake of a terror incident at Parsons Green underground station in west London, in which at least 22 were injured by an improvised explosive device left on a tube train during morning rush hour, David Videcette, a former Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism detective, who was involved in the 7/7 bombings investigation, offers cause for relief and worry alike.

​”Going on what we know so far, it appears to be a liquid improvised explosive device (IED), placed in a plastic container, with fairy lights as an electronic initiator — they may have picked fairy lights because they often come with delayed timers. This was meant to set off a chain reaction in the container, but that evidently hasn’t taken place at the right moment, so luckily the main charge didn’t explode,” Mr. Videcette told Sputnik.
