Five teenagers charged with terror offences

Five teenagers from London aged between 15 and 19 have been charged with terror offences after being arrested earlier this week by the Metropolitan police.

A statement from Scotland Yard on Friday night said: “The arrests relate to plans to travel to join a proscribed organisation.”

Scotland Yard said the male youths will appear at Westminster magistrates court on Saturday with one of the boys, a 15-year-old from Waltham Forest, charged with collection of information and two counts of dissemination of terrorist publications.

A 16-year-old from Lambeth has been charged with preparation of terrorist acts while a 17-year-old from Hounslow faces the same charge, as well as dissemination of terrorist publications. Read more
