A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, on suspicion of "arranging funds or property for the purposes of terrorism", the South East Counter Terrorism Unit (SECTU) has said.

The "pre-planned" arrest on Thursday morning relates to an investigation in connection with conflicts overseas.

I would like to reassure the community that this investigation should have very little impact on local residents.

The arrest was pre-planned and was not made in response to any immediate threat to public safety in High Wycombe.

– Local Police Area Commander for Wycombe, Supt Ed McLean
