Following the murder of several pedestrians and a police officer around Parliament yesterday afternoon, reports of a Birmingham connection transpired as BBC Newsnight was one of the first to suggest a connection with the city.
At around 11pm last night, armed police closed off Hagley Road as a large number of officers swooped on the area. The usually busy road was then closed off until around 2am.
The Met Police have since confirmed there have been seven arrests in total across London and Birmingham, with six properties raided overnight, including the Hagley Road premises.
