The Netherlands has freed a Somali-born Briton who was arrested at Schiphol airport on suspicion of terrorism en route to Uganda from the UK.

He was freed on Wednesday morning and allowed to leave the country, Dutch prosecutors said.

The man was arrested after a tip-off that he was planning to engage in terrorism in Somalia, they added.

However investigators "failed to confirm the information", they said.
