Police have arrested a serving member of the British Armed Forces on suspicion of Northern Ireland-related terrorist activities.
The 30-year-old man was remanded in custody at 12:20pm local time (11.20 GMT) on Wednesday during a joint operation involving the Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism squad, Avon and Somerset Constabulary, and Devon and Cornwall police.
In a press statement, the London Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) said the arrest was “pre-planned and intelligence led” as part of an investigation into Northern Ireland-related terrorism.
The suspect, from Somerset, has not been identified, but has been taken to an unnamed police station in the west of England.
