A man from Lincolnshire has been arrested for terrorism offences.

Police raided a property this morning and arrested the 46-year-old on suspicion of membership of a proscribed organisation and malicious communications.

He remains in police custody for questioning and enquiries are ongoing.

Investigators say today's arrest is part of a wider operation into the activities of a banned organisation.

“Those involved in proscribed organisations have a detrimental effect on the communities others work so hard to build so it is essential people contact us with information so we can put a stop to those who support extremist ideologies."

– Detective Chief Superintendent Dominic Scally, Head of Counter Terrorism Policing for the North West
