Police have been reassuring members of the public at a press conference after a man was arrested in Hayle on suspicion of preparing for an act of terrorism.
Superintendent Jim Pearce said there was no threat to the local community.
I can tell you that we worked with officers from the South East counter terrorism unit, we assisted them in a pre-planned warrant to arrest a male under section five of the terrorism act.
This was a low key arrest, proportionate to the circumstances. The person in our custody needs to be interviewed and we need to discuss the investigation that is in hand.
It doesn't involve local people, or anybody in the UK. There is no threat to the local community. A lot of work was done behind the scenes and that work was presented to us by our colleagues in the counter terrorism unit. I can understand that local people have concerns but I would like to reassure them that the investigation is not locally based, it is overseas.
