Stansted Airport terrorism arrest: Suspect, 18, held

A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences at Stansted Airport.

The 18-year-old was taken into custody by Scotland Yard's counter-terrorism officers when she arrived on a flight.

She was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts and membership of a proscribed organisation, police said.

A 21-year-old man was previously arrested in Hackney on 29 October in relation to the same investigation.

Officers said he was arrested on suspicion of assisting another to commit acts of terrorism, or to engage in any conduct for the committing of such acts, by facilitating another to travel abroad.

He has been bailed until a later date in January.
