Police have arrested a seventh person in connection with a suspected plot to carry out a major terrorist attack on British soil.

A 22-year-old woman was detained at an address in Hackney, east London, early today.

She was arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under the Terrorism Act 2000, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.

The arrest, by officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, follows six others made on Thursday.

The woman is in custody at a south-east London police station.

On Thursday British Muslim convert Richard Dart, 29, was one of the six people arrested over the suspected terror plot.

Dart, who changed his name to Salahuddin al-Britani after converting, is believed to have been one of three people detained in Ealing, west London, and was arrested in the street.

He appeared in a BBC Three documentary, My Brother The Islamist, made by his stepbrother Robb Leech last year, which described how Dart, originally from Weymouth, Dorset, had been converted by controversial cleric Anjem Choudary.

In the documentary he spoke of his support for jihad and sharia law

The others detained in Ealing were a 21-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman held at separate home addresses.

Three men living just over a mile from the Olympic site in Stratford, east London, were also arrested.

The men, aged 18, 24 and 26, who are believed to be members of the same Bangladeshi family, were detained in a raid on their home.

The six, including a former police community support officer, remain in custody at a south-east London police station on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

Warrants of further detention were granted at Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday.

The alleged plan involved Islamist extremists with potential targets in the UK, but was not linked to the Olympics, it is understood.

The threat to the UK from international terrorism is currently rated substantial - the third highest of five levels.

I commend the Metropolitan Police for a job well done. On the 7th anniversary of the Tube attacks, they stopped another potentially deadly terrorist attack. The police will have to be vigilant, since millions of people from all over the world will be visiting the great city of London during the Olympics. I would also like to point out that only a small minority of Muslims are terrorists. Most Muslims in the UK and America are law-abiding citizens.
