London [UK], Mar 5 (ANI): Three small improvised explosive devices were found at Heathrow airport, City Airport and Waterloo station here on Tuesday, according to London's Metropolitan Police.
"The packages – all A4-sized white postal bags containing yellow Jiffy bags - have been assessed by specialist officers to be small improvised explosive devices. These devices, at this early stage of the investigation, appear capable of igniting an initially small fire when opened," the police stated.
Investigations have been launched by officers from Counter Terrorism Command, as law enforcement authorities are treating the incidents as a linked series and "keeping an open mind regarding motives".
"Flights at Heathrow & City Airport have not been affected. Train services at Waterloo Station continue to operate. As a precaution, some DLR services were suspended but now fully operational," Metropolitan Police tweeted.
There have been no injuries while no arrests have been made either.
Further information is awaited. (ANI)
