Anti-terrorist operation latest
Officers from the Met’s Anti-Terrorist Branch were granted warrants of further detention for 23 people arrested during the anti-terrorist operation which took place overnight on 9 August.
The warrants for 21 people allow the MPS to detain them until 23 August. Two warrants have been granted until 21 August.
One person arrested during the anti-terrorist operation has been released with no further action. The suspect arrested in the Thames Valley area on 15 August has been released with no further action.
In all operations, some people may be released early without charge while others may remain in custody for further investigation. This is not unusual and is to be expected in large and complex criminal enquiries where a number of arrests have taken place.
