A 15-year-old schoolboy has been arrested for 'extreme right-wing' terror offences as the bomb squad was called to a home in Princes Risborough.

Counter terrorism police swooped in on the property yesterday (December 14) and took the teenager into custody where he currently remains.

Thames Valley Police are warning the community that they should expect a heightened police presence in the area.

The boy was arrested on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and currently remains in custody.  

Police say that the ideology is linked to 'the extreme right wing'.

Superintendent Emma Burroughs, the Local Policing Area Commander for South Buckinghamshire, said: “I understand that this can be a worrying time for the local community, thankfully incidents of this nature are relatively rare.  

“We would like to reassure you that officers and staff are working hard alongside our partner agencies to address any concerns you may have and there is currently no wider risk to the public.  

"As part of this ongoing investigation, specialist Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) officers have been requested to attend as a precaution and to assist with the search.  

“You may notice an increased police presence, please don’t be alarmed, officers are involved in the investigation and are there to assist and support. Please approach these officers if you have any concerns or questions.   

“This is an active investigation so please refrain from speculation, if you have information which could assist, please call 101.  

"I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their support so far with this investigation.”
