An 18-year-old man was arrested at the address on suspicion of dissemination of terrorist publications (contrary to Section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006).

Officers also searched the address under a warrant.

The man was taken into custody, and he has since been bailed to a date in mid-February 2023.

The investigation relates to Islamist terrorism.
