A man has been arrested by counter terrorism police investigating a series of letters calling for a so-called "Punish a Muslim" day.

The letters were circulated among communities in South and West Yorkshire, Leicestershire and London earlier this year.

Police say a 35-year-old man was arrested in Lincoln yesterday and is being held at a police station in West Yorkshire on suspicion of plotting to commit murder, sending a hoax noxious substance and threatening messages.
