UK Police Say Suspect 7 People Arrested After Attack of Terror Acts Preparation
MOSCOW (Sputnik) A total of 90 percent of UK citizens think that further terror attacks are likely to happen in the country after the attack in London, which is 6 percent more than in summer 2016, a YouGov poll issued on Friday revealed.

"The survey – conducted after the strike in Westminster – finds that nine in ten (Brits 90%) now say they believe further terror attacks against Britain are likely. This is up from 84% last summer and 78% in the September 2014," the YouGov’s press release accompanying the poll said.

Only 5 percent of respondents said that further attacks were unlikely.

According to the poll, 73 percent of Brits think that terror threat in the United Kingdom was growing worse, which is 1 percent less than in July 2016.

At the same time, 67 percent of respondents said that the government was effectively dealing with the threat of extremism and terrorism.

A total of 1,690 adults took part in the poll carried out on March 22-23.

The poll comes after on Wednesday a man drove his car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and then attempted to enter the parliament, stabbing a police officer to death in the process. Five people, including the attacker, died as a result of the terrorist act, while at least 40 people were injured.
