Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command have arrested a 19-year-old woman over terrorism funding.

The woman attended a south London police station by appointment today, Thursday, 28 September, and was arrested on suspicion of being involved in funding terrorism, contrary to Section 17 of the Terrorism Act 2000. She currently remains in custody.

Today’s arrest is not linked to the Parsons Green investigation.

On the 12 January this year officers searched a north London address and arrested a 51-year-old woman on suspicion of funding terrorism as part of this investigation. She was bailed pending further inquiries.

Both arrests, which relate to Syria, were made under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE).

Enquiries continue.
