He was arrested on Wednesday throughout the British management zone in Coquelles, France, as a part of a pre-planned operation by officers from the MPS Counter Terrorism Command.
A Met police spokesman confirmed: ‘He was arrested on suspicion of making ready for terrorist acts and membership of a proscribed organisation and detained beneath Police and Legal Proof powers.
‘While in police custody, he was subsequently detained beneath the Terrorism Act 2000.’
The Met Police refused to remark additional on the person’s identification, the place he lived earlier than travelling, or the circumstances of the arrest.
