British anti-terror police investigating a suspicious device found on the London Underground have made a new discovery in Devon.

Sky News sources said the discovery is linked to another device which was found on the London tube on Thursday morning.

The device was found at North Greenwich station – a main hub for London's O2 complex – and was destroyed in a controlled explosion.

The station was evacuated and remained closed for several hours.

A 19-year-old man was Tasered during an armed operation on Holloway Road, north London, yesterday and is being held on terror charges.
