Police following 100 terror leads after funeral


Counter-terror police are investigat­ing more than 100 reports of suspicious activity flagged by members of the public after the death of the late Queen, it has emerged.

The period of mourning and the state funeral represente­d the biggest policing operation in the UK, over fears that terrorists would seek to exploit the event and mount an attack.

The period passed without incident, but counter-terror police said they got more than 800 reports from people who thought they had witnessed matters of concern. Matt Jukes, the head of counter-terrorism policing, said his officers were actively following up more than 100 of those leads.
