Warrants have been granted to further detain two men arrested in east London on Monday and three others following a counter terrorism operation carried out by the Met and Kent police forces.
A 24-year-old and a 40-year-old were arrested in pre-dawn raids at two east London addresses on Monday on suspicion of being concerned in commissioning, preparing or instigating acts of terrorism contrary to the 2000 Terrorism Act.
A 28-year-old man was arrested four hours later at Dover port on the Kent Coast.
This followed a swoop late Sunday night by armed police from the Met’s SO15 Command, supported by Kent police, who arrested a 33-year-old when they stopped a vehicle going outbound at Dover port.
Five men are now in custody after the warrants for further detention were granted yesterday.
