Two people arrested on suspicion of terror offences remain in custody
Two people who were arrested in Birmingham on suspicion of terrorism offences remain in police custody.
A 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were arrested in the city on Friday on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41b of the Terrorism Act 2000.
Detectives at West Midlands Police have been granted a further seven days to question the pair.
The two are currently being detained at a West Midlands Police station.
A spokesman for the force said: "The arrests, linked to Islamist-related terrorism, were pre-planned and intelligence-led.
"They are not linked to the London Bridge terror attack and enquiries into this matter were underway prior to the incident on November 29.
"As part of the investigation, officers are also carrying out a search of an address in the city."
