Diners at a Cornish curry house have told of the moment anti-terror police swooped.

A twenty-six year old Bangladeshi national has been released on bail after being questioned on suspicion of terror offences.

He will have to return to police in February, while officers carry out further enquiries.

He was arrested at a Hayle restaurant and a customer at the Balti King says officers with full body armour and battering rams burst in, before customers were told to leave.

Writing about his night on website, Tripadvisor, Dave T said: "Place was raided by 8 police with full body armour and battering rams! We were then promptly given the bill and asked to leave."

Police say they are probing internet activity to do with Syria - and there is no threat to Cornwall.

Chris Phillips from Falmouth used to be in charge of the UK's police anti-terror unit. He told Pirate FM: "When you get yourself down into Cornwall you think you're far away from the tentacles of terrorism - but actually you're not.

"With the use of the internet people can get into communities anywhere in the world. It's easy to sit in a village somewhere and plot some pretty horrible stuff.

"I think what we should do is be alert - be aware of what is going on in the rest of the world. I come from Cornwall, I know very well how apart from the rest of the world it sometimes seems. But, actually, all the problems that occur in the United Kingdom are also part of Cornwall."
