(Reuters) – British police said they had arrested six people in anti-terrorism raids across central England and London on Monday.

Officers held four men from Derby and another in Burton on Trent in central England while a woman was also arrested in London on suspicion of preparing an act of terrorism.

“We recognise that local people may have concerns as a result of these arrests and local officers will be out in the area as usual to speak to anyone who may have concerns,” a statement from the North East Counter Terrorism Unit said.

“We would ask people to remain alert and vigilant but not to be alarmed and we are grateful for the assistance, support and understanding of people locally.”
