A woman travelling with her one-year-old son has been arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of terrorism offences.

The mother, 25, from Birmingham, was also arrested on suspicion of child neglect and abduction.

Her alleged terror offences relate to Syria and she was held after arriving from Turkey, West Midlands Police said.

The force, which arrested her in a "pre-planned" operation, said there was no threat to the flight or airport.

Police said steps were being taken to ensure the child's welfare.
