Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command have arrested a man on suspicion of preparation of acts to commit terrorism.
The 49-year-old man was stopped by officers at London City Airport under schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000 on Thursday, 13 July. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of preparation of acts to commit terrorism, under section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.
The man, who was arrested under PACE, was taken to a south London police station, and has since been released on bail to return on a date in late July.
Officers also carried out a search at an address in Essex, which is now complete.
