'Pop-up terror attacks' now greater risk to UK

So-called 'pop-up' terror attacks, like the one on soldier Lee Rigby, now pose a greater risk to the UK than organised plots like 7/7.

Smaller, less organised attacks, where a few people, or even a single individual is targeted, show the nature of terror attacks is changing.

What went wrong in the Rigby case will be revealed in a report due out tomorrow.

Serious questions will be raised about what the police and intelligence services did and didn't do, and what they might have to do in the future to stop such attacks before they happen.
