Two more people have been arrested as part of an investigation into suspected terrorism in Syria.

A 27-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were arrested at a property in Essex on Wednesday on suspicion of "being involved in the commission, preparation and instigation" of terrorism.

Their arrests follow the detention of two men, aged 22 and 29, at the Port of Dover in Kent in the early hours of Monday in connection with the same inquiry.

Some ammunition was also seized.

Scotland Yard said searches are being carried out at properties in east London and Lancashire. Two vehicles had also been searched.
