Birmingham terror arrests

Police have arrested two people in Birmingham today (Friday 13 Dec) on suspicion of terrorism offences.

A 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were arrested in the city on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41b of the Terrorism ACT (2000).

The two are being detained at a West Midlands Police station.

The arrests, linked to Islamist-related terrorism, were pre-planned and intelligence-led. They are not linked to the London Bridge terror attack and enquiries into this matter were underway prior to the incident on 29 November.

As part of the investigation, officers are also carrying out a search of an address in the city.

Every year thousands of reports from the public help police tackle the terrorist threat. If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, trust your instincts and ACT by reporting to police in confidence at

Reporting won’t ruin lives, but it could save them. Action Counters Terrorism.

Remember, in an emergency, always dial 999.
