Counter-terrorism Raid in Brentford
As part of investigation of suspected islamist extremists
Counter terrorism police from SO15 raided six homes across the south of England yesterday as part of an investigation in a group of suspected Islamist extremists.
Scotland Yard said the raids were carried out under schedule 5 of the Terrorism Act.
Officers from Scotland Yard are also examining whether the men wanted to travel to Syria to fight.
Properties in High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, Hounslow in Middlesex, Walthamstow in east London, Brentford and two in Greenford, west London were searched.
A number of cars were also searched.
Two men were arrested at a further two addresses on suspicion to commit grievous bodily harm.
The pair, one aged 30 who was held in Hounslow and one aged 18 who was held in Brentford, was being questioned last night over the allegations, which are not terrorism-related.
