Three men have been arrested by anti-terror officers on suspicion of supplying forged documents, Scotland Yard has said.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) made the arrests yesterday as searches at addresses in London and the East Midlands were carried out.

The men, aged 28, 33 and 30, have been taken to a central London police station where they remain in custody.

The latest arrests follow dawn raids in London on Thursday, in which a 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism and a 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to possess and supply fraudulent documents.

The 33-year-old remains in custody at a central London police station after a custody extension was granted until Thursday, December 11, while the 40-year-old has been bailed until January next year.

Searches relating to those detentions have concluded at five addresses – four in south-east London and one in Stoke.

A further two men, aged 33 and 43, were arrested in Dover last Sunday after Scotland Yard anti-terror officers with armed support officers and Kent Police stopped a car going outbound at Dover.

A 28-year-old man was arrested at the same port on Monday morning. Under the same operation, two men, aged 24 and 40, were arrested on Monday in east London.

Warrants for the further detention were granted yesterday until Sunday December 14 for each of those five people previously arrested in connection with the investigation and all five remain in custody.

Searches linked to those arrests were carried out at four addresses in east London, one in south London and two in north Wales as part of the investigation. These searches have now been completed.
