Lancashire man charged under Terrorism Act

A 33-year-old man from Lancashire has been charged with terrorism offences.

The man has been charged with six counts of collecting information which may be useful to someone who commits or prepares for an act of terrorism.

A Lancashire Police spokeswoman said the man, who is from Bamber Bridge, was charged under the Terrorism Act 2006.

He is due to appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday, she added.

The charges follow a joint investigation between Lancashire Constabulary and the North West Counter Terrorism Unit.
