A’sheriff’s patrol car’ van exploded in central London yesterday and witnesses said it had been smashed by an explosive.
The blast on a street outside London Bridge was thought to be a police trap but it came as the Metropolitan Police continuedapronx to investigate claims an illegal drugs lab had produced huge quantities of a powerful amphetamine.
Six people have been arrested for possession of explosives.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police confirmed four suspected members of the gang, dubbed the ‘Black Rock Gang’, are under arrest.
They are said to have made their claim at the weekend, but had refused to co-operate in the subsequent police investigations.
Four of the suspects have been arrested and officers are investigating the other three, police said.

“We do not know all of those involved in the investigation. Police have worked very diligently in this case and we will be following up as and when evidence emerges,” the Met said.
Five of the suspects have been arrested and officers are investigating the other three, police said.
Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said the device is thought to have been triggered by a police trap and that its failure will have a “significant impact” on the future of the investigation.
The incident comes as the police and drugs tsar, Sir Paul Stephenson, said: “The police have done an excellent job this investigation, and we fully endorse that, but this is another example of their fr더킹카지노ustration and concerns about how these types of incidents continue.
“We do want to reassure the communities and individuals affected by drug gangs that the Met Police and other partners will ensure proper action is taken against any criminals responsible.”
A spokesman said: “Police have been asked by the Crown Prosecution Service, after receiving an anonymous complaint, to undertake a major joint investigation with other partners in the Met.”
