THREE men have been arrested in relation to terrorism offences with links to Syria.

A 27-year-old man from Stoke Poges and a 26-year-old man from Slough were arrested on Tuesday last week in connection with preparation of terrorist acts under the Terrorism Act, with links to Syria.

The 27-year-old has been bailed until August 20 and the 26-year-old until August 19.

Another 26-year-old man was arrested at an address in Slough yesterday (Tuesday) in connection with financing terrorist acts, and he has been bailed until August 21.

Chief Inspector Gavin Wong, Slough local policing area deputy commander, said: “These arrests demonstrate that positive action is being taken to safeguard members of the community from the dangers of travelling to Syria.

“The police will continue to work with our partners and community in the interests of public safety and I would ask that we all continue to discourage anyone from attempting to travel to Syria or other areas of conflict.

"While the motive may be honourable, the reality is that these areas are hugely dangerous, and it can be an opportunity to radicalise vulnerable people.”
