Dudley terrorism arrest: Man held over 'publication'

A 33-year-old man from Dudley is being questioned on suspicion of terrorism offences, police have said.

The West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit arrested him at his home at 07:00 GMT.

He is suspected of distributing an ideological publication contrary to Section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

A force spokesman said the operation did not relate to a manual such as bomb-making instructions, and there was no immediate risk to the public.

A property is still being searched by officers.
