Special Forces On UK Streets (again)
UKSF troops helped police in raid to bust 'Christmas bomb terror plot' in Newcastle.
Special Forces troopers were seen on the streets of a quiet cul-de-sac in Newcastle earlier this week. The SF support was part of a huge operation involving approximately 100 police officers who helped cordon off the area whilst the lads got to work.

Operating on intelligence from M15 a raid was set in motion with UKSF at the forefront of the assault. The building in question was suspected to be involved in bomb-making activies and the use of special forces 'underlined how concerned investigators were' about what they might find.
CTSFO's (Counter Terrorist Specialist Firearms Officers) worked alongside with the Elite troops to take down the premises in Newcastle.
A 33-year-old man was arrested at the property on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Witnesses described the scenes as 'something from Call of Duty'.
