Two men arrested in Newham on suspicion of terror offences have been released without charge.

The pair - aged 34 and 37 – were arrested at separate addresses in the borough on Thursday, June 8.

A third man, who was arrested the same day in Waltham Forest, has been charged.

Irfan Khan, 33, of Walthamstow, is set to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today charged 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 under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

The arrests are not related to the investigation into the London Bridge terror attack.
