One more person has been arrested in the UK on suspicion of “preparation of terrorist acts” in connection with an attack on the British parliament by a ‘lone wolf’ last week.
“A 30-year-old man was arrested on Sunday at an address in Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts. He was detained under the Terrorism Act and currently remains in police custody,” Scotland Yard said in a statement on Sunday.
A 58-year-old man, who was arrested on March 23 on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts, remains in police custody, the Metropolitan Police said.
A 32-year-old woman was arrested on March 24 under PACE and has been released on bail until a date in late March.
“Officers have carried out a total of 15 searches at various addresses in east London (two), south London (one), Brighton (one), Surrey (one), Carmarthenshire (one), Birmingham (eight) and Manchester (one). Fourteen searches have now concluded, with one ongoing in Birmingham,” the Met said.
In total, 12 people have been arrested as part of the investigation. Nine have been released with no further action.
