Police have put out new advice on staying safe - and helping protect Cornwall - after the arrest of a man in Hayle.

The 26 year old Bangladeshi national has been released on bail after being questioned on suspicion of terror offences - linked to the internet and Syria.

Officers insist there is no threat to Cornwall but they are increasing the number of patrols in the town to provide reassurance.

Anti-terror experts say it is easy to become convinced that the Duchy is so far away from London that it is isolated from world events.

Devon and Cornwall Police say: "The best way of preventing terrorism is to stop people becoming terrorists in the first place. Terrorists, extremists groups and their networks promote violent extremism by a variety of methods. Their continued existence relies on recruiting others to their cause.

"We are working to stop this by providing support for members of our community who may be being exploited or recruited into violent extremism. We work with local authorities, other statutory partners and community groups to put in place support measures for those individuals who may be pulled towards violent extremism.

"There is no ‘typical’ profile of what kind of person is at risk of being drawn into violent extremism. We do know that family, friends and other professionals are the first people to notice early warning signs that an individual is becoming involved in violent extremism.

"Let us know of individuals you feel are susceptible to being drawn into violent extremist activity so that early, appropriate and effective support can be arranged. Likewise, tells us about individuals who are promoting violent extremism."
