An east London man charged with terror offences has today been acquitted at Kingston Crown Court.

Irfan Khan, 33, was charged on Tuesday, 20 June, with seven counts of possession of a record of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing to commit an act of terrorism.

The Crown Prosecution Service said it had no evidence against Mr Khan in relation to the charges.

Two men previously arrested in Newham arrested were released earlier in the year with no further action.
