An 18-year-old man arrested in north London last week has been charged with a string of terrorism offences.

Sudesh Mamoor Faraz Amman, of Brancker Road, Harrow, was charged with seven offences of making a record of information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

He was also charged with three offences of dissemination of terrorist publications.

The man had been detained in the street last Friday by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command.

He will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.

A 19-year-old woman who was arrested in south London and an 18-year-old detained in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, on Wednesday have both been bailed.
