Two men have been arrested in Bedfordshire on suspicion of terrorism-related offences, police have said.

Raids were made at two addresses in Bedford on Monday morning by the East Counter Terrorism Investigation Unit.

The two men are in their mid-20s and were taken to Greyfriars Police Station in Bedford where they were interviewed and later released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Some items were seized at the two properties, police said.

The raids came a fortnight after two other men were arrested in Luton on suspicion of supporting a banned organisation.

A woman was also arrested in Bedfordshire on 22 October on suspicion of terror offences linked to the conflict in Syria.

The 25-year-old, detained on suspicion of the preparation of terrorist acts, was bailed until early February pending further inquiries.
