Britain faces a much greater terrorist threat than the attack carried out by four suicide bombers that killed 52 people in London in July, the former head of the intelligence services has warned.
The former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove said that we must now expect a biological, chemical, radiological or even nuclear attack because intelligence showed that was what al-Qa’ida and its linked organisations had developed an interest in.
