Three British teenagers have been deported from Turkey after they allegedly planned to join Isis Reuters

Three British teenagers arrested in Turkey after allegedly plotting to join Isis in Syria are now in custody at a London police station.

On Friday 13 March, officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command were made aware that two 17-year-old boys from north-west London had gone missing and were believed to be travelling to Syria.

Enquiries revealed that they had travelled with a third male aged 19.

Officers alerted the Turkish authorities who were able to intercept all three males, preventing travel to Syria.

It has since emerged the suspects arrived back in the UK on Saturday 14 March, at approximately 11:10pm and were arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

All three have been taken to a central London police station, where they remain in custody.

Enquiries continue.
