Daily Mirror - - NEWS - EX­CLU­SIVE by DUN­CAN GARDAM and CHRIS HUGHES

THE main Par­son’s Green Tube bomb sus­pect was seized when a po­lice of­fi­cer saw him in a Chelsea shirt act­ing sus­pi­ciously near a Chan­nel ferry.

He recog­nised Ahmed Has­san, 18, from a CCTV im­age cir­cu­lated to of­fi­cials.

The Iraqi refugee fled by bus af­ter leav­ing the bomb two weeks ago, then trav- elled by tube and train, sources said. He bought the foot­ball top in Ash­ford then waited overnight in Dover for Yahyah Far­roukh, 21, who did not turn up. Far­roukh was ar­rested and re­leased with­out charge. A source said: “We owe a lot to this ea­gle-eyed cop. Of­fi­cers like him en­sure we are all kept safe.” Has­san is charged with at­tempted mur­der and ma­li­cious use of ex­plo­sives. Scot­land Yard de­clined to com­ment.
