Three teenagers from Brent who were arrested and bailed after they tried to travel to Syria to join fighters will have no police action taken against them.

The two 17-year-olds and the 19-year-old man were released without charge today after they returned to a police station to find out their fate.

The trio were arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006 after they were returned to the UK on March 14.

They had been detained by Turkish officials before they crossed the border into Syria.
