Five UK terrorism arrests in Birmingham and at Gatwick Airport 'linked to attacks on Brussels and Paris'
From the Telegraph:
Five people have been arrested by British anti-terror police as part of an operation with Belgian and French authorities following attacks in Europe.
Counter-terror officers in the West Midlands said they were working with MI5 and international partners to "address any associated threat to the UK" after militants struck in Brussels and Paris. Whitehall sources described the arrests as “significant”.
Four people - three men aged 26, 40 and 59 and a 29-year-old woman - were arrested in Birmingham on Thursday night, while a 26-year-old man was arrested at Gatwick Airport early on Friday morning.
They were held on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
