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.
