Counter terrorism police have arrested a man at his place of work in west London.

The 30-year-old was arrested on Tuesday (March 7) under the Terrorism Act 2000 and detained under the PACE legislation.

Police say the operation, carried out by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, was pre-planned and not as a result of an imminent threat.

Officers also completed the search of a residential address in south London as part of their investigations.

The man is being quizzed at a central London police station.
