From The Telegraph
Five men have been arrested in the north west under the Terrorism Act
Officers from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit arrested the five men at addresses in the north west in a co-ordinated operation starting at 4am, Greater Manchester Police said.
The addresses searched were in Stockport Road, Levenshulme; Victoria Road, Longsight; Bowdon Avenue, Fallowfield, and Willows Lane, Deane, Bolton.
The spokesman said: "People living in nearby communities will see a high profile police presence during the day and will be able to discuss issues with local officers"
I wonder what community that could be? And what 'issues' they might have?
Police sources said there was no imminent terrorist danger to the Greater Manchester area and the arrests were related to an alleged overseas threat.
