Three more men have been arrested over an alleged fraud involving donations to Syrian aid charities

The suspects, aged 39, 41 and 42, were arrested in Derby on behalf of Kent Police, who seized £45,000 at the Port of Dover in December 2012.

Nine men, aged between 30 and 43, who were arrested in March across the UK, are currently on police bail.

Police said they were investigating concerns that money for humanitarian aid was being diverted towards crime.
