A man has been arrested today, 5 July, as part of an investigation by anti-terror cops.
The 19-year-old man was arrested this morning at an address in south-west London on suspicion of terrorism offences under section 41 of the Terrorist Act 2000.
Armed officers of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command executed a warrant under schedule 5 of the Terrorism Act.
No one was injured.
The man has been taken to a London police station, where he remains in police custody.
Officers are carrying out a search at the address.
It is not believed there was any imminent threat to the public. Enquiries continue.
This arrest is not related to the arrest of a man and woman in Luton on suspicion of terrorism offences earlier this week.
