13 planned terrorist attacks have been averted in Britain since 2013, according to British police.
Investigators have been making arrests at a rate of close to one a day on average since 2014 while the official threat level for international terrorism has stood at severe - meaning an attack is "highly likely" - for more than two years, according to the Standard.
Scotland Yard's head of counter-terrorism, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, also revealed that during that period there were more than 500 live counter-terror investigations at any time.
He said that since the murder of Lee Rigby in May 2013, police and intelligence agencies have disrupted 13 terrorist attack plots – one higher than the last update in October last year.
Rowley attended an event marking the start of a new campaign to involve ordinary people in the fight against terrorism. Information from the public has helped police in the investigation of a number of extremely dangerous terrorist plans.
