Gloucestershire Police have lifted a 200-metre cordon around Buttermere Close in the Up Hatherley area of Cheltenham, after two men were arrested under suspicion of terrorism offences.
Assistant Chief Constable Richard Berry said:
“We know that this announcement will come as a huge relief to all of the families that haven’t been able to access their homes over the last couple of days, meaning residents who live within that area can now return home.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received from the community during what had to be a methodical and thorough search of the area for the safety of local residents.
Officers from Gloucestershire Police will be carrying out house to house enquiries in the area. A 25 metre cordon will remain in place around the garage.
