Armed police opened fire and shot a woman in her 20s during an anti-terror raid where a 16-year-old boy was also arrested.
Dramatic video footage shows the moment elite Met officers smashed their way into the terraced house in Willesden, north London at about 7pm last night.
Five shots can be heard being fired and a woman in her 20s was hit and is under police guard in hospital in a serious but stable condition today.
A 16-year-old boy and and a 20-year-old woman were arrested inside the Willesden house and a man, 20, was arrested nearby. Simultaneously a woman, 43, was arrested at an address in Kent.
All were held on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts.
The female suspect shot by officers in balaclavas has not been arrested yet because of her condition.
The dramatic raid came hours after a 27-year-old man was arrested with a ‘bag full of knives’ in Whitehall, but Scotland Yard has said the the two incidents were not linked.
