Patients campaign against physio's deportation

Patients in Dover say they are worried they won't be able to find a physiotherapist to treat them - as the owner of one of the only private clinics in the town has been threatened with deportation to India.

They've started a petition calling for him to be allowed to stay, which has already received hundreds of signatures.

Abigail Bracken's report includes interviews with physiotherapist, Satheesh Sankara Gounder; his patient David Ottley; and Dover's independent MP, Charlie Elphicke.

Man arrested in Dover after terror attack due in court

An improvised explosive device was

An 18 year old man, arrested at the port of Dover, following the Parsons Green terror attack is due in court.

An improvised explosive device injured 30 people on an underground train during rush hour last month.

Ahmed Hassan, an Iraqi asylum seeker, of Cavendish Road in Sunbury has been accused of attempted murder and using the chemical compound TATP to cause an explosion that was likely to endanger life.

He allegedly bought parts to make the improvised explosive device online and left the District Line train at Putney Bridge before the device partially detonated at the next station on 15th September.

Witnesses described how a fireball erupted inside the carriage, leaving 30 people injured, including one woman with serious burns.

The teenager, whose parents are understood to have been killed in Iraq, was in the foster care of Penelope and Ronald Jones, aged 71 and 88 respectively, who previously received MBEs for services to children and families.

Hassan will make his first Crown Court appearance before senior judge Mr Justice Haddon-Cave via video link from custody.

The incident at Parsons Green left several people injured

An 18-year-old man has been arrested in Dover on suspicion of a terror offence. It follows the Parsons Green underground train bombing in London on Friday 15th September.

Scotland Yard said that Kent Police detained the teenager in the port area of Dover this morning. The Metropolitan Police said that they will move the teenager to a police station in South London.

"We have made a significant arrest in our investigation this morning. Although we are pleased with the progress made, this investigation continues and the threat level remains at critical.

"The public should remain vigilant as our staff, officers and partners continue to work through this complex investigation. We are not, at this time, changing our protective security measures and the steps taken to free up extra armed officers remain in place.

"This arrest will lead to more activity from our officers. For strong investigative reasons we will not give any more details on the man we arrested at this stage."
