Two boys held on suspicion of plotting terror


Police have arrested two boys in Kent on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts.

The pair, aged 15, were arrested at their homes in Ramsgate and are being questioned at a police station in the South East.

They are being detained under section 41 of the Terrorism Act.

Detective Superintendent Nigel Doak, from Counter Terrorism Policing South East, said: “I would like to reassure the local community that today’s arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led, and there was no immediate threat to the public.

“We are committed to tackling any and all ideologies which pose a threat to the public’s safety and security.

“We treat the threat from the extreme right in exactly the same way as any other threat.”
