Man arrested over alleged plan to join terrorist group

A man suspected of planning to travel to Syria to join a banned terrorist group has been arrested.

The 20-year-old was arrested at a residential property in east London at about 07:00 BST.

He was held on suspicion of preparing to go Syria to join a "proscribed organisation". The force could not say which group.

He has now been released on bail to a date early in June pending further inquiries.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command unit are investigating.
