Terrorism arrest in High Wycombe

A man has been arrested in High Wycombe on suspicion of "arranging availability of property for the purposes of terrorism", police have said.

The 24-year-old, who lives in the town, was held under a part of the Terrorism Act relating to "funding arrangements".

Police said the investigation was about "conflicts overseas" and was not linked to an "immediate threat" in the UK.

They said the arrest was "pre-planned" and the man was being questioned at a police station.

Supt Ed McLean said the arrest was not made in response to any "immediate threat to public safety in High Wycombe", and the investigation "should have very little impact on local residents".

The arrest in the Buckinghamshire town was carried out by officers from the South East Counter Terrorism Unit and Thames Valley Police.
