The Metropolitan Police (Met) report that a 37-year-old British national was arrested this morning (April 28) within the British control zone in Coquelles, France, as part of a pre-planned operation by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.
He was arrested on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts (under section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006) and membership to a proscribed organization (under section 11 of the Terrorism Act 2000).
He is currently in custody at a London police station as enquiries continue.
The Met says the arrest relates to alleged activity in Syria.
