Two people in Birmingham have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences.

A 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were arrested yesterday on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

Detectives have been granted a further seven days to quiz the pair.

An address in the city is also being searched by officers as part of the investigation while the suspects are being held at a police station.

A police spokesman said:

The arrests, linked to Islamist-related terrorism, were pre-planned and intelligence-led.

"They are not linked to the London Bridge terror attack and enquiries into this matter were underway prior to the incident on November 29."
