Parcel bombs have been discovered at Heathrow airport, London City airport and Waterloo railway station in what police believe is a coordinated campaign.

Counterterror officers are investigating the three devices following a series of evacuations on Tuesday.

Images of the parcel bombs suggested they had been sent from the Republic of Ireland, with false sender’s addresses in Dublin written on the outside.
