Four men were arrested in Luton today on suspicion of terrorism offences in a raid orchestrated by national anti-terror police.
Scotland Yard announced that the men, who are in their 30s, were being questioned in London over claims they were ‘involved in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism’.
Officers searched seven houses in the Bedfordshire town as well as a number of cars in the area following dawn raids at 6am.
The arrests came as part of a long-running investigation into alleged terrorists in Luton, according to police, who insisted they are not related to the reaction to the ISIS attacks in Paris last month, or to the ongoing fighting in Syria.
Neighbours described hearing police officers should ‘Let us in!’ before they smashed down the door of one of the addresses.
Two of the men arrested are said to live with their wives and children, while a third is believed to be a single man living on his own.
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement today: ‘Four men have been arrested in Luton this morning on suspicion of committing offences under the Terrorism Act.
‘The arrests were carried out in a joint operation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) and the Eastern Counter Terrorism and Intelligence Unit (ECTIU).
