Police search property in Watford after man arrested for alleged terrorism offences

Police have arrested a man, 40, as part of an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

The man has been arrested on suspicion of collecting information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, contrary to section 58 Terrorism Act (TACT), 2000, police have confirmed.

He was initially stopped on Wednesday, 7 June (under schedule 7, TACT 2000), after he arrived into the UK at Luton on a flight from Kosovo.

He was subsequently arrested and taken to a local Bedfordshire police station and has since been released on bail to a date in early July.

Police have also confirmed that the arrest is ‘Islamist-related.’

As part of the investigation, officers also carried out a search at a residential address in the Watford area.

All searches are now complete and enquiries continue.
