Police have been granted extra time to question a man who was arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences.
A warrant of longer detention was granted at Westminster Magistrates' Court in relation to an investigation taking place in Wendens Ambo.
The warrant was granted under the Terrorism Act 2000, which means authorities have longer to interview a 42-year-old man and can hold him in custody until Friday.
The investigation is being led by detectives from the Metropolitan Police's counter terrorism command, who arrived in the village on Friday, with activity focused around a property in Mutlow Close.
Today (September 4) a police cordon could be seen around the entrance to Mutlow Close, and two police cars were visible as well as what appeared to be four unmarked police cars. At least three ambulances were stationed down a nearby lane.
