More Time For Police To Question Birmingham Terror Suspects

Police have been given extra time to question six people from Birmingham arrested over Syria-related terror offences.

The five men and one woman – all in their 20s - were detained in the departure area of the port of Dover on Friday morning.

Five men, aged 25 from Small Heath, 26 from Acocks Green, 26 from Alum Rock, 26 of no fixed abode and 28 from Lozells - plus a woman aged 23 of no fixed abode, were detained at approximately 8am. 

Officers now have until 8am on Friday 10 April to charge, release or apply for another warrant of a further detention.

Police said the investigation was on-going and that the suspects - who are not a family group and were not accompanied by children - did not pose any immediate risk to public safety.
