A 27-year-old man is being held on suspicion of terror offences after “suspicious items” were allegedly found at his home in Naseby Road, in the Alum Rock area of Birmingham.

Houses on the street were temporarily evacuated, as police, the fire service and army checked items in his house for safety.
