Counter-terrorism police have been granted more time to question three teenagers as part of an ongoing investigation in connection with an address in Willesden.
The young women, two aged 18 and the other 19, had been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts after warrants were executed at three addresses.
Detained under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000, the warrants were granted at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (May 2) and allow the three to be detained until Thursday (May 4).
It follows a police operation in Harlesden Road last Thursday (April 27), when officers stormed a property and shot one of the occupants, a 21-year-old woman.
She was taken to hospital but has since been discharged and was subsequently arrested.
A 28-year-old woman arrested at the same address on Thursday has been released with no further action at this time.
Five other people were also held that day on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorist acts.
- A 21-year-old man arrested near Harlesden Road
- A 20-year-old woman arrested at the address in Harlesden Road
- A 43-year-old woman arrested in Kent
- A 16-year-old boy arrested at the address in Harlesden Road
- A 28-year-old man arrested at the address in Harlesden Road
The police operation in Willesden happened on the same day that a man was arrested in Whitehall in central London on terror-related offences.
