Woman held at Heathrow Airport in anti-terrorism probe

Anti-terror police have arrested a woman at Heathrow Airport after she got off a plane from Turkey.

The 22-year-old was arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command at about 22:20 BST on Tuesday.

She was questioned on suspicion of membership of a proscribed organisation, contrary to section 11 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The Met said she was detained under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act.

She was taken to an east London police station for questioning but has been released on bail until a date in October.
