Counter terrorism officers arrest prisoner

Counter terrorism officers have arrested a man in prison over alleged support for so-called Islamic State.

The 24-year-old, arrested on suspicion of encouraging terrorism, was taken to a police station in south London, where he was bailed pending further inquiries.

A Met Police spokesman said: "The arrest relates to support for Daesh."

The man, who was later sent back to prison, is currently on remand awaiting trial on a separate matter.
