    This is the dramatic moment heavily-armed police swooped on the house where the first Parsons Green bomber lived.

    Shocking footage shows officers armed with automatic rifles stood outside the lilac-coloured home on Cavendish Street, in Sunbury-on-Thames.

    Neighbours claim terror police have recovered ’15 firearms and a bomb’ from a Surrey house raided yesterday in connection with the attack that injured at least 30.

    Officers stormed the home on Cavendish Road at 2pm yesterday, around six hours after apprehending the 18-year-old suspect in the departure lounge of the Port of Dover. 

    Neighbours claimed the teenager lived at the raided property and had been arrested at Parsons Green station two weeks ago but was later returned home.

    The revelation came after President Donald Trump tweeted that the ‘loser terrorist’ behind the latest London attack was ‘in the sights of Scotland Yard’

    The teenager is thought to have lived with Penelope, 71, and Ronald Jones, 88, who have raised 268 foster children in the house over three decades. 

    The lilac-painted property raided in connection with the attack, which injured 30, is owned by a kind-hearted couple who were both appointed MBEs for fostering hundreds of children

    But the Metropolitan Police are yet to confirm whether the 18-year-old was on their radar. 

    Armed officers knocked on around 60 neighbours’ doors to order them to leave their homes. 

    One told MailOnline that the Joneses had two children living at the property at the time.

    It is not known how long the foster teenager has lived in the Jones’ house for. 

    The second neighbour said the man had been dropped off from a foster home in Kent and that he saw him ‘ranting and raving’ at Mr Jones in the garden.

    He said: ‘I decided to go out to try and calm the situation down, I said to the lad, “they are nice people and you need to calm down”.

    Close friends of pensioners Penny and Ron Jones said the couple - who are widely respected in the local area - were at 'their end' with the teenager

    ‘He was ranting and raving saying he wanted to go to London.  

    Serena Barber, 47, who has known the couple all her life, said they have two foster children living at the property at the moment. 

    ‘One is very quiet and polite, the other who is 18 is awful,’ she told the Mail Online.

    ‘I know about two weeks ago he was arrested by police at Parsons Green, for what I don’t know and returned back to Penny and Ron. 

    ‘After that Penny said she was going to have to stop caring for him, she couldn’t handle him.’

    A search is also taking place at a residential address in Stanwell, Surrey, in connection with the arrest of a 21-year-old man’s arrest in Hounslow.

    Foster couple that took in hundreds of needy children

    The kind-hearted couple whose house in Sunbury was raided yesterday have MBEs for fostering at least 268 people over three decades.

    Of those children Penny and Ron Jones have taken in, at least eight were refugees coming from countries including Iraq, Eritrea, Syria, Albania and Afghanistan.

    One of them was a 15-year-old boy who had smuggled himself into the country from Calais in the back of a lorry after escaping his oppressive family who had imprisoned him for his beliefs.

    Mrs Jones, who has six children of her own with her husband, said in an interview with community group Elmbridge CAN: ‘We just try and support where we can – because they’ve had bad lives.

    ‘Sometimes, watching the news, they can get so worked up that they have to leave the house and go for a walk – it’s awful to see and it’s so difficult for them.’

    Mrs Jones was inspired to foster children after working in a juvenile prison for five years.

    ‘[I read] one of the kids profiles and thought, “had his mum and dad had time for him, he wouldn’t be in here”. Every time I gave him some attention he grabbed it. I knew that if he’d had this before, he would never have gone off [the rails].’

    In an interview with the BBC after the couple were honoured by the Queen in 2009 Mrs Jones said the children they take in need to be ‘loved and feel special’.

    She added: ‘We open our hearts to all the children. Anybody that comes to us we will do whatever we can do to help them with whatever they need.’

    The couple try to stay in touch with all the children they have taken in.  Mrs Jones said: ‘I send them birthday cards – it’s a very extended family.’
