A man from Bedfordshire has been arrested on suspicion of a terrorism offence as part of an investigation being led by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command



The arrest comes after an investigation was initially launched by Bedfordshire Police on 6 May when items, including a number of suspicious substances, were found at a residential address in Caddington.

A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing explosions likely to endanger life and possession of class A drugs. The man was bailed while further enquiries were undertaken.

Due to the nature of items found, the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command was informed at that time, although the initial investigation remained with Bedfordshire Police.

On 13 May, and following continued searches at the address, the investigation was subsequently passed to the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command to lead.
