Detectives have been given more time to quiz a 34-year-old man from Birmingham held on suspicion of terrorism offences.

The man, who was detained on Wednesday, can be kept in custody by the West Midlands counter terrorism unit until the evening of Wednesday November 23.

The force said: ``The arrest was pre-planned and intelligence-led; there was no threat to the public's safety.''
