Record numbers of terror suspect arrests
TERROR suspects are being arrested in record numbers following a dramatic surge in activity by security agencies and a flurry of attacks.
Official figures show a total of 400 people were held on suspicion of terrorism-related offences in Britain in the year to the end of September – a rate of more than one every day.
This was the highest tally since data collection started in 2001 and a jump of 54% compared with the previous year.
The Home Office said the rise was partly due to the many arrests following the London and Manchester attacks.
