Counter-terrorism police have arrested a man as he disembarked a flight from Turkey.

Scotland Yard announced they had detained the 30-year-old shortly after landing at Heathrow Airport from Istanbul on Thursday.

He was arrested on suspicion of preparing a terrorist act contrary to the Terrorism Act 2006 and is being held at a police station in south London.

Officers are currently searching a residential address in east London.

The Government will deliver a statement on its plans for airport expansion in south east England to MPs before midday on Tuesday.

A Number 10 spokeswoman confirmed Transport Secretary Chris Grayling will speak in Parliament at around 11.30am on the issue which has led to fierce Cabinet debate after decades of disagreement.

Mr Grayling said on Sunday any of the three options - new runways at Heathrow or Gatwick, or extending an existing runway at Heathrow - would "open up new opportunities" for Britain post Brexit.
