The 24-year-old was detained at 8.45am on touchdown from a flight from Bahrain on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

He was initially stopped by immigration officials at 8am.

He has been taken to a south London police station awaiting interview by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.

One man was previously charged on October 16 in connection with this investigation.
