The 17-year-old was arrested on Tuesday, 25 August, at an address in north London on suspicion of possession of documents likely to be useful to a terrorist, contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act, 2000.

He was detained under PACE, and taken to a south London police station, where he was subsequently released on police bail to a date in mid-September.

Officers also carried out a search at the north London address, which is now complete.

Enquiries continue.
