Plot to assasinate UK PM Theresa May foiled

A terror plot to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May has been foiled, Sky sources have confirmed.

The same report found that the ringleader of the June London Bridge attack was actively under investigation at the time.

He said MI5 investigators had misinterpreted intelligence on Abedi. He has told about the planned attack in a report to the government on Monday. Most terror plots continued to be foiled before they are launched, he said. The then prime minister, John Major, was inside but was not hurt.
