The majority of the five terror suspects being held in police custody in connection with bomb attacks in London and Glasgow are not British and at least one is still at large, according to Sky sources.

Sky sources believe one of the men arrested at Glasgow airport and a 26-year-old man arrested on the M6 with a 27-year-old woman in Cheshire are both doctors.

Sky Crime Reporter Martin Brunt said: "This is very far removed from the picture we normally have. These are professional people with highly paid jobs who are intent on killing people."

Two men were arrested after ramming a Jeep into Glasgow Airport on Saturday and two people were arrested on the M6. A fifth terror related arrest was made in Liverpool after a car was stopped in the Lime Street area of the city.

Meanwhile a suspect car has been blown up by police in the grounds of the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley where one of the suspects from the Glasgow airport attack is in a critical condition and being held under armed guard.

The hospital was cordoned off and army disposal experts called in to carry out the controlled explosion.

Strathclyde Police said they believed the car was connected to the attack at Glasgow airport but did not contain explosives.

During the airport attack, two men rammed a burning Jeep Cherokee into the main terminal, leaving passengers screaming in terror.

It has since emerged the car was packed with gas canisters which would have caused massive casualties if they had exploded.

While the driver is in hospital being treated for burns, the second man in the car, a 27-year-old, is in police custody.

Assistant Chief Constable John Malcolm is appealing for information on the movements of the Jeep, registration L808 RDT.

He said: "I need information regarding sightings of this vehicle in the past few weeks and in particular the past few days."

He said the force was reviewing CCTV footage from the airport and was receiving up to "100 calls an hour" from the public.

The attack follows the attempted bombings in London early on Friday morning, when two Mercedes packed with petrol and nails were parked in London's West End near the Tiger Tiger nightclub.

Meanwhile homes in Sunningdale Grove, in Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire have been raided in connection with the M6 arrests as police widen their net in the search

Homes in Houston, near Glasgow, are also being searched by Strathclyde Police.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke said the links between the three attacks were becoming "ever clearer".

He said: "We are learning a great deal about the people involved in the attacks and are pursuing new lines of inquiry."

The government has raised Britain's terror alert level to critical, meaning an attack is expected imminently.
