A man has been released on bail after being questioned on suspicion of terrorism in Hayle.

Police swooped on a restaurant in the town on Monday night.

The twenty-six year old was questioned on suspicion of preparing for an act of terrorism.

He has been bailed until February, "pending further enquiries."

Detectives say it's connected to conflicts overseas - and there's no threat to our safety in Cornwall.

West Cornwall Local Police Area Commander Supt Jim Pearce said: "I would like to reassure the community that this investigation should have very little impact on local residents. The arrest was pre-planned and was not made in response to any immediate threat to public safety in Hayle.
 
“Our officers will continue to maintain a presence in the area, offering reassurance to the local community.”

Police have revealed the man is from Bangladesh. They say the alleged offences are linked to Syria and they are investigating internet based activity.

Superintendent Jim Pearce told Pirate FM: "There will be very little impact on local residents. The arrest was pre-planned and was not made in response to any other immediate threat. Our officers will however continue to maintain a presence in the area and will offer re-assurance to anybody that needs it."

Pirate FM's Sarah Yeoman is in the town and said: "Police say this is in relation to conflicts overseas and are keen to point out there is no immediate threat to local communities - or anywhere else in the UK.

"There is a high presence in the seaside resort though to re-assure people. Two vans and about six bikes have just driven past me and there's another police van parked along the street."

Paul runs a business nearby. He told Pirate FM it is hard to believe it has happened: "We are almost groomed now to be more aware, even here. I suppose the old "It'll never happen to us" syndrome comes into play and then all of a sudden here it potentially is. And this is Cornwall. This is Hayle.

"Things like this don't happen in Cornwall do they? Everybody now probably has to be a little bit more aware than they used to be but still it's shocking to think that this could possibly happen in Cornwall. It's frightening to be honest... frightening."

If anyone from the local community has any concerns or information contact police on the 101 number or the Anti-Terrorist Hotline 0800 789 321; all calls will be treated with the strictest confidence.
