Five people suspected of terrorist offences are being questioned by police today in connection with an alleged plot to target the G20 summit.
[efoods]Three men and two women have been arrested under the Terrorism Act in Plymouth over the last three days after officers uncovered a cache of weapons and suspected extremist material during a house search.
They are being questioned over claims they planned to target the meeting of the world’s most powerful political leaders in London later this week.
The five were held after officers found weapons, imitation weapons, suspicious devices and ‘material relating to political ideology’ during a house search, a police spokesman said.
