Record number of terror arrests follow attacks

There were a record 412 terror-related arrests last year – the first time the figure has been above 300.

The figures from the Home Office for 2017 show an increase of 58%.

It compares with 261 arrests for terrorism-related offences in 2016.

The Home Office says the increase is, in part, due to the number of people held after attacks in London and Manchester.
