However, we have been clear for some time now that should anyone return to the UK whom we suspect of being involved in any terrorist-related activity overseas, then they can expect to be thoroughly investigated. We work very closely with other partners and agencies here in the UK and overseas in order to do this and help keep the public safe.”
