Counter-terror police have arrested four men on suspicion of being members of a banned organisation hours after they flew into the country.

The four Sri Lankan nationals arrived at Luton Airport on 10 April and were arrested by police the next day.

The Metropolitan Police said the men were stopped under the Terrorism Act 2000 and arrested under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984.

The four remain in custody at a police station in Bedfordshire.
