A man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences.

The 49-year-old man was arrested from an address in Solihull today (December 11).

Officers also carried out a search of the address as part of their investigation.

The man is currently being questioned at a police station in the West Midlands on suspicion of funding/supporting terrorism.

Police say the arrest is not linked in any way to the London Bridge terror attack.

The arrest was pre-planned and intelligence-led; there was no risk to the public.

Every year thousands of reports from the public help police tackle the terrorist threat. If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, trust your instincts and ACT by reporting to police in confidence at gov.uk/ACT."
