FIVE people are being questioned by police today after they were arrested in connection with the failed terrorist attacks on London and Glasgow.
Officers arrested a suspect in Liverpool today after two men were taken into custody in Cheshire by anti-terrorism officers from the Metropolitan Police and West Midlands Police.
The trio were arrested after a blazing jeep packed with petrol and gas canisters was driven through the doors of the main terminal at Glasgow Airport yesterday afternoon.
It was the third attempted terrorist attack in just 36 hours, after two car bombs were found in the centre of London on Friday.
Two men, one of whom was engulfed in flames before they were doused with water, were arrested at Glasgow Airport after yesterday's botched attempt to blow up the building and kill hundreds of people inside it.
Following the failed terror attacks, police at the region's airports have stepped up security.
