Cameron's remarks came as the UK government planned to recruit 1,900 new spies for the country, in the biggest increase in British security spending since the July 7/7 bombings in London in 2005 as radicalised Britons returned home from Syria with potential to carry out terror attacks.

"Our security and intelligence services have stopped something like seven attacks in the last six months, albeit attacks planned on a smaller scale...It was the sort of thing we were warned about but the warning that we were previously planning and responding to very much came out of al-Qaeda and that area between Pakistan and Afghanistan," Cameron said.
    
He said the plots were on a smaller scale to Paris but added the attacks in the French capital could happen anywhere.
    
"We have been aware of these cells operating in Syria that are radicalising people in our own countries, potentially sending people back to carry out attacks," Cameron added.
    
The UK government's new funding will be invested in security and intelligence agencies to provide 1,900 new officers, an increase of 15 percent, at MI5, MI6 and GCHQ.
