Three teenagers who were flown back to the UK and arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts after being detained in Turkey returned to London last night, ITV News understands.
A source said the three male suspects had originally been detained at Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport, Istanbul.
Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee Keith Vaz said the number of young people attempting to travel to Syria is "clearly" on a "much larger scale" that authorities initially envisaged.
Speaking today as two teenagers from London remain in custody after being detained in Istanbul for allegedly trying to join IS, he said it was vital for parents and authorities to be vigilant.
I welcome the action that has been taken by the Turkish authorities.
We need to prevent people going in the first place and that is why parents need to be vigilant but we also need cooperation from the Turkish authorities in order to stop them from going further.
We need to be vigilant. Clearly this flight of young people to Turkey in order to go to Syria is on a much larger scale than we envisaged.
Two teenage boys from north-west London, and a third 19-year-old man, who were stopped in Turkey on their way to Syria are being held at a central London police station on suspicion of terrorism offences.
Scotland Yard confirmed the teenagers had returned to the UK today.
A Met police spokesman said: "Officers alerted the Turkish authorities who were able to intercept all three males, preventing travel to Syria.
"On Saturday, March 14 the three males returned to the UK and at approximately 11.10pm were arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts contrary to section five of the Terrorism Act 2006."
