The two searches were taking place at a suburban home in Sunbury, southwest of London, and in Stanwell, another suburb close to London Heathrow Airport.

Basu also said investigators were keeping an "open mind" as to whether more than one person was involved in the attack. "Our priorities. are to identify and locate any other suspects", he added.

Home Secretary Rudd further said that she would urge everyone to be vigilant but not alarmed. Rudd said authorities will try to determine how the suspects may have been radicalized.

Images of the bomb posted on social media appear to show a bucket on fire that had been placed inside a plastic bag close to a rail auto door.

"This will free up extra armed police to patrol the streets and protect the public."

"Military personnel will replace police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites which are not accessible to the public".

Previous attacks in London this year at Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and Finsbury Park as well as a blast at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester killed dozens of people and injured more than 150.

London police said their investigation into Friday's attack is being supported by MI-5, Britain's domestic intelligence agency.
