Police in London have foiled a suspected plot to launch an ISIS attack in Britain after arresting two men.
Counter terror officers launched an early morning raid and swooped on the pair in west London, arresting both on suspicion of being involved in the ‘preparation of terrorist acts.’
A 19-year-old was detained on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts and a 20-year-old was arrested on suspicion of funding terrorism and failure to disclose information regarding an act of terrorism, Scotland Yard said.
The older man was also held on suspicion of preparing acts of terrorism relating to a separate investigation by the South East Counter Terrorism Unit.
Both suspects, from London, are in custody following a pre-planned raid on a west London address by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command and the South East Counter Terrorism Unit.
