The man was taken to Paddington Green police station in central London. He was one of four men arrested at two addresses in Birmingham today.

West Midlands Police said the four had been arrested under the Terrorism Act 2000 and that a suspect package was found during one of the raids in the east of the city.

A West Midlands Police spokesman confirmed that one suspect had been shot with a Taser stun gun, although no firearms were discharged.

Another man was detained this afternoon at Luton Airport under the Terrorism Act, Bedfordshire Police said. He was due to fly on Ryanair to Nimes in France when he was stopped by police. The aircraft was initially delayed but was allowed to continue its journey after being checked by police.

This followed the arrest last night at Grantham railway station of two men under the Prevention of Terrorism Act - as they travelled from Newcastle to Kings Cross, Lincolnshire Police said. The arrests were made after information was given by two off-duty Metropolitan Police officers who were travelling on the GNER train.

Detectives have been working round the clock to track down the four 21 July attackers amid fears they may try and launch another attack.

Those fears were heightened by evidence that they had access to more explosive material and may have returned to the bomb-making flat they used in New Southgate, north London, after Thursday's botched suicide bombings.

The Birmingham raids took place at about 4.30am and were a joint operation between West Midlands Police, the security services and the Metropolitan Police Anti-Terrorist Branch.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "Officers executed a warrant obtained under the Terrorism Act 2000 at an address in Heybarnes Road, Hay Mills.

"One man was arrested under the Terrorism Act 2000. The man was Tasered during the operation. No firearms were discharged. He has been taken into custody to a central London police station."

The spokesman added: "A suspect package was found and, as a precautionary measure, evacuations have been undertaken in the vicinity and bomb disposal experts are in attendance."

Shortly afterwards, a second search warrant was executed at an address in Bankdale Road, Washwood Heath.

"Three men were arrested at this address under the Terrorism Act 2000," the spokesman went on. "They have been taken into custody in the West Midlands Police Force area. Forensic examinations are being conducted at both addresses. These operations are in connection with the incidents in London on the 21st July 2005.

"Clearly there will be some disruption to the Heybarnes Road area, part of which has been evacuated, but public safety remains our main priority."

There were unconfirmed reports that one of the men arrested in the raids is believed to be one of the four men wanted in connection with last week's bomb attacks.

The Birmingham raids are thought to be of major significance in the hunt for the bombers. Detectives have been working round the clock to track down the four amid fears they may try and launch another attack.

One of the men held in the raids - the one thought to be a member of the gang involved in last week's attacks - was taken to Paddington Green police station in central London, where all key terror suspects are held.
