Police have been granted more time to question two people from Croydon who were arrested on suspicion of funding terrorism.

A 45-year-old woman and a 49-year-old man were among seven people arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of committing terrorist financing offences.

Warrants for further detention were granted by Westminster Magistrate's Court last night. The warrants are due to expire on May 8, seven days after the arrests.

The group were arrested at four separate addresses in London, Cardiff and Coventry.

Search warrants were executed at a further five residential addressed, including at a property in Croydon.

These searches in connection with the investigation have now been completed.
