Extra time granted to question suspected far right terrorists

Detectives have been given more time to question five men arrested on suspicion of terror offences. Counter-terror officers detained the five men in a series of pre-planned raids across the country on Wednesday (January 3). The suspects, from Cambridge, Banbury, Wolverhampton, Leicester and Stockport, are believed to be members of the banned far-right group National Action. On Thursday (January 9), West Midlands Police was granted a warrant of further detention, allowing officers to continue questioning the men for another five days. A 37-year-old woman, also suspected of being a member of National Action, has been released under investigation. Officers are continuing to search a number of properties across the UK in connection with the arrests.
