British police investigating the July 7 London bombings were today searching a flat, the Metropolitan Police said.
Detectives raided a one-bedroom flat in Shepherd’s Lane, Harehills, Leeds, early today.
Fifty-two people were killed when suicide terrorists exploded four bombs on three Tube trains and a bus in 2005.
Detectives from the Met's anti-terror unit raided the flat, in a predominantly Asian suburb around two miles from Leeds city centre, at 7am.
Sources said the raid followed a tip-off from a member of the public.
Detective Assistant Commissioner John McDowall made a further appeal for information today, saying the force continued to search for anyone who knew of the bombers’ plans.
He said: “While it is more than three years since the attacks, this remains a painstaking investigation, and as we have previously said we are determined to identify anyone else who knew what was being planned.
“As a result of our inquiries we are carrying out an extensive search of the flat to determine whether there are any links to the people responsible for the 7/7 attacks.
“I would urge anyone who has suspicions about activity in the flat either in the months leading up to the 7/7 attacks or afterwards, to contact police.
“Any information, regardless of how insignificant it may seem, could be important.”
