Nine terror attacks on Britain have been foiled in the last year, the government said today.

Downing Street said the planned attacks were prevented in the period spanning 12 months to today.

It came after Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, revealed the figure during a presentation to Theresa May and the Cabinet.

Britain has been rocked by terror attacks this year that did slip through the net of security services.
