A woman has been arrested at Luton airport on suspicion of Syria-related terror offences.
Detectives from the UK’s West Midlands counter-terrorism unit detained the 25-year-old as she left a flight that had returned to England from Istanbul, in Turkey.
The woman is from London.
She is being held at a police station in the West Midlands on suspicion of preparing for acts of terrorism.
The terror threat level in the UK was raised from substantial to severe earlier this year against a backdrop of increasing concerns over hundreds of aspiring British jihadis travelling to Iraq and Syria to learn terrorist ”tradecraft”.
