Three Men and One Woman Were Arrested on Tuesday

Police have been given an extra five days to continue questioning the three men and one woman arrested Tuesday (Feb 25) on suspicion of Syria-related terrorism offences.

A district judge assessed the progress of the investigation and granted a warrant of further detention until the morning of Tuesday March 4.

Meanwhile, searches continue at the three home addresses of the individuals detained.

They are a 45 year old man from Hall Green, suspected of attending a terrorist training camp and facilitating terrorism overseas, a 36 year old man from Shirley, suspected of facilitating terrorism overseas, and a 44 year old woman and her 20 year old son from Sparkhill, also suspected of facilitating terrorism overseas.

Detectives from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit detained all four in a pre-planned operation. They stressed there had been no immediate threat to public safety.
