UK Anti-terror arrests: Police collar 5 Muslims

A young man has been arrested in east London on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism – as four people are also held in Yorkshire.

The 23-year-old was detained by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, in an unconnected operation four people – two men aged 36 and 40, from Sheffield, and a 55-year old woman and 44-year old man from Batley, West Yorkshire – were arrested on suspicion of Syria-related terror offences.
