Dewsbury man charged with terror offence in Syria charity probe

A Dewsbury man has been charged with a terrorism offence following an investigation into suspected fraud by a Syrian aid charity.

The 34-year-old was arrested by anti-terror police and will appear before Westminster magistrates on 6 May.

He is accused of collecting information which might be used to commit or prepare an act of terrorism.

Four men arrested in May 2014 as part of the investigation have been released without charge.
