Security increased at Wimbledon after London bomb defused

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -Security at Wimbledon was increased Friday after British police thwarted an apparent car bomb attack in central London.

Police discovered a parked car in central London that was packed with gas containers and a large number of nails and a detonator. The attack would have caused ``significant injury or loss of life,'' police said.

``All around the ground the security has been intensified,'' Lawn Tennis Association chief executive Roger Draper told Radio Five Live. ``We are a high-profile event and the championships take security very seriously. This year in particular, everything has been tightened up for people out there.''

Wimbledon is an outer suburb of London.
