A man who was arrested in east on suspicion of terrorism offences has been released on bail.

The man, from east London, who is in his 30s, was arrested at an address at around 6am on Wednesday, October 2.

Officers believed the suspect was conducting suspicious behaviour by collecting information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

This breached the rules stated under the section 58 of the Terrorist Act.

He was detained under PACE and taken to a south London police station; he was subsequently released on bail to a date in late October.

Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command are investigating and carried out a search at an address in east London as part of the investigation.

Enquiries continue.
