Two men have been arrested in London over terrorism-related offences.

Scotland Yard said they were held on Wednesday on suspicion of encouragement of terrorism and possessing information useful to persons preparing or committing acts of terrorism.

A 50-year-old-man arrested in Westminster is being questioned at a south London police station. A 57-year-old man arrested in Barnet has been released on bail until September.

Police said searches at two residential properties – in Westminster, central London, and Barnet in the north of the city – have now been completed. A number of vehicles were also searched.

The arrests were made by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command. It is understood the arrest in Westminster was made at a residential address and not near any major landmark.
