A man has been arrested on suspicion of collecting information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

The 40-year-old man was stopped by police on Wednesday after he arrived into the UK on a flight from Kosovo to Luton airport.

He was investigated by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

Then he was arrested and taken to a local Bedfordshire police station.

The man has since been released on bail to a date in early July.

Officers also carried out a search at a residential property in the Watford area.

All searches are now complete and enquiries are ongoing, Met Police said.
