>> Overnight anti-terror raids taking place in the UK. Police swooping on addresses in London and Kent, arresting six on suspicion of terror offenses. Gunshots ringing out after armed police surrounded a home in Willesden, northwest London. One woman in her twenties was shot during the raid. She's now in a serious but stable condition under police guard in hospital.
At a security briefing Friday, police said they had stopped an active plot.>> Due to these arrests that have been made yesterday, in both cases I believe we have contained the threats that they posed. With the attack in Westminster on the 22nd of March so fresh in people's mind, I would like to reassure everyone that across the country, officers are working around the clock to identify those people who intend to commit acts of terror.
>> The raids come after a man was arrested in Westminster on Thursday armed with several knives. The 27-year-old was detained by counter-terrorism police near the British Prime Minister's Office. Just meters from the scene of last month's deadly attack on Westminster Bridge. Police sources say the man arrested on Thursday was being monitored as part of an intelligence-led operation and that he was known to authorities.
So far, police have made no connection between events in Westminster and the anti-terror raids.
