A senior police office has been arrested today in a counter-terrorism operation aimed at exposing an Al-Qaeda mole in senior office, sources within the Metropolitan Police have confirmed.
Reports are sketchy, but it is believed that armed police from Scotland Yard's elite SO19 firearms unit swooped on the private bathroom of Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick, catching him in the act of dumping.
The documents Quick was flushing away allegedly prove him to be a sleeper agent for Al-Qaeda, living and working in the UK under a false identity. His real name is rumoured to be Abu Sof Authoritee Bin Themoron, a shadowy terrorist and confidant of Osama Bin Laden. Bin Themoron was known to be planning further atrocities against the UK, but his whereabouts had been a mystery for some time.
The operation was brought forward after Bin Themoron was caught on camera at Downing Street attempting to send signals to a terror cell in Liverpool. Police sources say they were left with no choice but to act quickly and make the arrest.
Assistant Commissioner Quick has been taken to Belmarsh, where he is to be interrogated before being extradited to Guantanamo Bay.
