A Brent man has been charged following a series of dawn raids by detectives on Tuesday.

Liiban Nursharif was arrested at an address in the borough, after detectives from the Counter Terrorism Command stormed addresses in Brent, Croydon, Cardiff and Coventry.

The 30-year-old will appear before Westminster Magistrates’ Court this morning (Saturday) alongside Adrian Wall, 49, from Croydon and Daud Ali, 40, from Cardiff, charged with conspiracy in connection with the mislabelling of parcels being exported out of the UK.

Ali is also accused of possessing a false passport.
