A man and a woman arrested after their car was stopped have been charged with terror offences.

The pair were arrested in Luton on July 3 as part of an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.

The 28-year-old man, who police have not named, has been charged with one count of preparing acts of terrorism, one count of possessing a document likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism and one count of disseminating terrorist publications.

The 25-year-old woman, who has also not been named by the Met, faces two charges of failing to disclose information relating to acts of terrorism.

A Scotland Yard statement said: “The man has tonight, Monday 15 July, been charged with one count of section 5 (1) (A) of the Terrorism Act 2006; one count of section 58 (1) (B) of the Terrorism Act 2000 and one count of section 2 (1) of the Terrorism Act 2006.

“The woman has been charged with two counts of section 38B (2) of the Terrorism Act 2000.”

Both will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
