Suspected Islamist Extremist, 25, Arrested At Heathrow Airport

A 25-year-old man has been arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of terrorism.

The suspect, from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, was held on Wednesday for alleged offences linked to Islamist extremism. He is suspected of having committed offences of preparing for acts of terrorism, membership of a banned organisation and receiving weapons training.

The man was arrested following an investigation by officers from Counter Terrorism Policing South East. It comes after experts warned that Britain is facing its biggest terror threat in years following the collapse of Afghanistan to the Taliban.
