was linked to the suspect arrested.
Sunbury is 10 miles west of Parsons Green, where the explosion occurred. Residents reached by phone Saturday said that shortly before 2 p.m., police officers arrived to seal off the residential neighborhood around Cavendish Road and Burgoyne Road.
Louise Margetts, 54, said she was returning from the supermarket when she saw four police vehicles, including a police canine unit, speeding up the road.
“The officers at the back jumped out and started cordoning off the road,” she said. “They were running, and said, ‘Turn around now.’ “
Margetts, a teacher, managed to get home but police arrived at her door soon afterward.
“They didn’t really tell us anything,” she said. “They knocked, well, hammered, on the door and said: ‘Out now. We can’t say why.’”
