Four arrested in London anti-terrorism raids
Scotland Yard said they were held under the Terrorism Act 2000 on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism. Armed officers were involved in the arrests, which took place at around 19:10 BST in the Whitechapel, Bayswater and Peckham areas. Police said searches were taking place at six addresses. In a statement the Met said the arrests were made during a “pre-planned, intelligence-led operation”. The men have been taken to a south London police station. Two men were arrested in Mansell Street, Whitechapel, east London. One man was arrested at a premises in Westbourne Grove, Bayswater, west London, and the fourth man in Peckham Hill Street, Peckham, south-east London. A man who saw the arrest taking place in Westbourne Grove said he saw three men being held against a wall by officers. “There was quite a lot of police,” he said. “There was quite a scene as I approached.” The witness recalled seeing two police vans and a police car but said the area was now clear.
