Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service's Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) are investigating following the arrest of a 22-year-old man at Luton Airport.

At approximately 16:30hrs on Wednesday, 9 July the man was stopped under schedule 7 at Luton Airport by officers from Bedfordshire police before boarding a flight to Istanbul, Turkey. He was subsequently arrested by the officers on suspicion of being involved in the preparation of acts to commit terrorism, contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism ACT 2006.

He was taken to a south London police station and has since been bailed to a date in mid-August pending further enquiries.

One address in west London was searched as part of the investigation. This search has been completed.

Enquiries continue.
