Man arrested in London counter-terrorism swoop bailed

One of two men arrested in London on suspicion of terrorism offences has been released on bail.

The 40-year-old was detained by the Met Police's counter-terrorism command in south-east London on Saturday.

He was held on suspicion of making "funding arrangements for the purposes of terrorism" but was bailed until a date in May, the force said.

A 30-year-old man arrested in north London on Wednesday on suspicion of preparing terrorism remains in custody.

He was apprehended under the Terrorism Act 2000 and is being held at a south London police station, the Met said.

Searches at a residential address in north London have now finished but inquiries are ongoing.
