Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command in London, U.K., have arrested a man on suspicion of possession of material likely to be useful to a terrorist, contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
They arrested the 25-year-old at Gatwick Airport at approximately 04.00hrs on Monday, August 17, after he arrived on a flight from Turkey.
The man – arrested under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act – has been taken into custody at a central London police station, where he remains.
Officers searched an address in north London as part of the ongoing investigation and the man has been bailed to return to a central London police station in mid-September.
