“The gang left a suspicious package in a pub then waited to see how fast police would arrive and how many officers would be scrambled.” The package was addressed to the Queen, who the jihadis would dearly love to murder.
FEARS of a new plot to kill the Queen have intensified after suspected terrorists carried out a “dry run” beside Windsor Castle.
The gang left a suspicious package in a pub then waited to see how fast police would arrive and how many officers would be scrambled.
An “Arabic-looking” man left a tightlypacked [sic] brown envelope addressed to “The Queen” at the Duchess of Cambridge pub in Windsor, Berks, on September 15.
An eyewitness claimed two accomplices watched to see how long police took to respond.
On Saturday the source, who did not want to be named, said: “The first man came in for tea, was polite to the woman who served him and insisted on leaving a tip.
“He left soon afterwards and when staff saw the envelope they did exactly the right thing and called police.
“But two other Arabic-looking men standing nearby disappeared as soon as officers arrived with a sniffer dog 15 minutes later.
“It seemed as if they were doing some kind of practice run and testing reaction times.
“If it were a real terror attack who knows what kind of chaos could have ensued.”
The pub was evacuated before police examined the package and found it contained only a towel….
