Five members of the same family have been arrested by counter-terrorism police in east London, Scotland Yard has said.
The five – a 51-year-old man, a 53-year-old woman, and girls aged 16, 17 and 19 – were held on suspicion of “possessing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism”.
The man was also accused of possessing false identity documents “with improper intention”. They are all in custody at a central London police station.
The arrests are part of an ongoing inquiry which saw a 16-year-old girl arrested last month on suspicion of preparation of terrorism. She is on police bail until September as inquiries continue.
