Armed police swoop on suspected north London terrorist

Armed police have swooped on an 18-year-old man suspected of preparing acts of terrorism.

Counter-terrorism officers swarmed on a north London street at 00:10 BST on Friday.

The suspect was taken to a south London police station by the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command. He remains in custody.

It is understood the arrest is not linked to Saturday's forthcoming royal wedding in Windsor.
