ANTI-TERROR cops swooped on an address in Dudley borough this morning to arrest a man on suspicion of distributing a terrorist publication.

A 33-year-old man from Dudley borough has been arrested on suspicion of distributing a terrorist publication (contrary to Section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006).

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "Officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit detained the man at his home address at 7am this morning.

"The property is being searched."

The spokesman added: "This intelligence led operation relates to the supply of a suspected ideological text - not an operational manual such as bomb making instructions.

"The arrest was not made in response to any immediate threat to public safety."

The police have not revealed the exact location of the arrest.
