UK 9/11-style attacks thwarted

British security services have thwarted September 11-style terror attacks on London’s Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf, it emerged tonight.

Plans to crash planes on the two high-profile targets are among four or five al Qaida strikes that security chiefs believe they have stopped.

Training programmes for suicide pilots have been disrupted, a senior authoritative source told ITV News.

The Home Office and Metropolitan Police declined to comment on the report.
