18 January 2015, 08:38

An 18-year-old woman arrested at Stansted airport on suspicion of terrorism offences has been bailed.

Counter-terrorism officers arrested the teenager when she arrived on a flight at Stansted Airport at around 4pm on Friday (16th January), Scotland Yard said.

She was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts and membership of a proscribed organisation, police said.

She was taken to a central London police station, and bailed today to a date in mid-February.

As part of the investigation a 21-year-old man was arrested in Hackney, east London, on October 29 on suspicion of assisting another to commit acts of terrorism, or to engage in any conduct for the committing of such acts, by facilitating another to travel abroad.

He was taken to a south London police station, where he was later bailed to return on a date in late December. He has since been re-bailed to a date in January.

A search at the residential address in Hackney was also carried out.
