A 23 year old Sheffield man has this morning (Friday June 2) been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in connection to an ongoing investigation by the North East Counter Terrorism Unit, supported by West and South Yorkshire Police.

Two men arrested yesterday evening (Thursday June 1) are aged 24 and 29. They were arrested at separate locations in Huddersfield and Sheffield. The properties have now been thoroughly searched.
