Police Get More Time To Question Walsall Terror Trio
West Midlands' anti-terror police have been given more time to question three people over Syria-related offences.
Two men, aged 21 and 27, and a woman, 21, from Walsall were picked up yesterday morning at their home addresses.
Detectives from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) appeared before London's Westminster Magistrates Court via video link earlier today to submit their request for a warrant of further detention.
The five day extension means that detectives can now hold the three until Tuesday 16 June.
Police are keen to stress that while the arrests were pre-planned and intelligence led, there was no imminent threat to public safety.
