Seven terror suspects held

Seven men have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism after police found guns and other weapons hidden in a car that was impounded for having no insurance.

One man from West Yorkshire and six from the West Midlands were last night being questioned on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

West Midlands police officers had impounded the uninsured car, only to find two guns, some ammunition and other offensive weapons hidden inside.

It followed a separate counter-terror swoop in London on Thursday, which saw six arrests in the Stratford and Ealing areas of the capital.
