Anti-terror police have arrested a man, 28, during a raid on a property in East Sussex on Friday evening

He is one of three men being questioned on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's counter-terrorism command, assisted by officers from Sussex Police, arrested two men in Essex and a third in East Sussex at around 6pm on Friday.

The men are being held in custody at a south London police station.

Officers have also executed search warrants at one address in East Sussex, and three addresses in east London.

Police say the arrests are not connected to the recent terror attacks in Westminster, Manchester or Borough Market.
