Prime Minister Theresa May has spoken with her Swedish counterpart and offered to work together against extremist attacks.

Downing Street said she had expressed condolences on behalf of the British people in a telephone call to Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven.

The statement said the two leaders agreed on the importance of working together to tackle such threats.

Britain was hit by a similar attack last month when a man drove a car into pedestrians before stabbing a policeman to death outside the Houses of Parliament.

A man arrested following the deadly lorry attack in Stockholm is "likely" to be the driver of the hijacked truck which ploughed into pedestrians, Swedish Police said.

The man was detained in a northern Stockholm suburb on Friday and later arrested on suspicion of "terrorist crimes through murder".

Four people were killed after the beer lorry crashed into a department store in the Swedish capital on Friday afternoon.

"Yes, it is correct, it is likely him," police spokesman Lars Bystrom said on Saturday.

"The person in question has been arrested as the culprit, in this case the driver," he added.

The prosecutor, Hans Ihrman, said that the unidentified suspect should face a pre-trial custody hearing before midday on Tuesday or be released.

Officials also confirmed that only one person has been arrested in the case, contrary to media reports that two had been detained.

The whole of Sweden is "united in grief and anger" following the lorry attack which left four people dead and 15 injured, the country's Prime Minister has said.

"These kinds of actions will never succeed," said Stefan Lofevn.

"We know that our enemies are these atrocious murderers and not each other.

"Our message will always be clear: you will not defeat us, you will not govern our lives, you will never ever win."

Mr Lofven added that the country is "determined to never let the values we cherish be undermined by hatred" and called the crash an "act of terror".
