Does the Home Secretary agree that we should congratulate not only the police but the fire services that had to deal with the initial consequences of the explosions? Will he repeat his advice to members of the public that they should not be frightened to pursue a wild goose chase by reporting information which they believe to be relevant or what might be a bomb? Is he aware that many people fear that they put an extra load on the police by reporting something that turns out to be unimportant?
