Six street cleaners arrested over an alleged plot to attack the Pope could try to sue the police after being released without charge, detectives fear.
The men were detained by counter-terrorism officers at a cleaning depot in central London after police received intelligence suggesting they were planning an atrocity against Benedict XVI.
But late on Saturday they were freed after police found no evidence to support their initial suspicions.
It was reported that the men – all of North African origin – were arrested after jokingly discussing how to harm the Pope in a work canteen.
A colleague is said to have overheard their comments and alerted counter-terrorism officers.
