Two teenage boys are being questioned in Kent on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts.
The boys − both aged 15 and from Ramsgate, Kent – were arrested from their home addresses on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts.
Detective Superintendent Nigel Doak from CTPSE said:
“I would like to reassure the local community that today’s arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led, and there was no immediate threat to the public.
“We are committed to tackling any and all ideologies which pose a threat to the public’s safety and security.
“We treat the threat from the extreme right in exactly the same way as any other threat.”
