Man arrested for terrorism offences in west London
Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command arrested a 52-year-old man at an address in west London on Monday, 22 November.
The man was arrested on suspicion of collecting information likely to be useful to a person preparing an act of terrorism (contrary to Section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000).
He was taken to a London police station and has subsequently been released on police bail until a date in late December.
Investigators are analysing a number of devices as part of their ongoing enquiries.
+ In the past year, around 10,000 reports from the public across the UK have been made to counter terrorism officers about suspected terrorist activity – either by calling the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321, or reporting any concerns online via www.gov.uk/ACT. Around a fifth of those reports provided useful intelligence, which went on to help counter terrorism investigations and help officers stop terrorist activity.
