Further terror arrests in Walthamstow
An exclusive from the Waltham Forest Guardian
COUNTER-terrorism raids have once more hit Waltham Forest.
A 27-year-old man was arrested in Walthamstow on Tuesday (27 Feb) in connection with the alleged plot to blow up aeroplanes, which led to a series of raids across the borough on August 10 last year.
At around 6am police counter-terrorism officers raided a house and arrested the man, who remains in custody.
Police would not confirm if the house was the man's home but said it was a residential address. Officers continue to search the propety.
Another Walthamstow home has been searched by police.
So far nine people from the borough have been charged under the Terrorism Act.
A source close to the man's family said the 27-year-old was known to be friends with some of those who were charged, and had visited them in prison several times. "He is known in the community as an OK guy," the source said.
But of course.

Of course it's still aeroplane. Some things are sacred.

"Airplane" is just a funny film. If I had my way, any "airplanes" caught trying to Americanise their way into Blighty would be shot down.

Do the English still use the spelling "aeroplane"? That spelling always puts me in mind of Sopwith Camels,and the English translation by Willa and Edwin Muir of "The Aeroplane at Brescia." Or has the American spelling "airplane" managed to wing its way across the stormy North Atlantic, and?then to land safely in the British spelling books,?as a final act of mental Lend-Lease, coming in, as it no doubt would have to, in order to avoid the wogs-begin-at-Calais purists, under the radar?
