The incident comes just days after a homemade bomb planted in a rush-hour subway car injured 29 people in London, sparking a huge manhunt for the perpetrators of what police said was the fourth terrorist attack in the British capital this year.

Officials have also raised the country’s terrorism threat level to “critical” —meaning another attack is expected shortly.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the device “was intended to cause significant harm,” but to the relief of authorities and Londoners, the bomb — hidden in a plastic bucket inside a supermarket freezer bag — only partially exploded, sparing the city much worse carnage.

“I would say this was a failed high-explosive device,” Chris Hunter, a former British army bomb expert, said of the blast, which caused no serious injuries.
