UK terror arrests hit record levels in 2017

London: The number of arrests made for terror offences in Britain hit a new record of 412 in 2017,  according to latest UK government figures released today.

This marks a rise of more than 58 per cent over the previous year, when there were 216 arrests.

"This was the highest number of arrests in a year since the data collection began," the UK Home Office data notes.

The arrests include 61 women, accounting for 15 per cent of total arrests, and a record number of suspects of white ethnic appearance, and 66 per cent who considered themselves to be British or dual citizens.

The year 2017 witnessed 36 victims killed and hundreds injured in high-profile terrorist attacks in the country, including attacks on Parliament, Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. Part of the increase in arrests was accounted for by large-scale police operations in the wake of the terror attacks.

A third of the arrests resulted in a criminal charge, but not all for terror-related offences, with some people detained released without further action, on bail or under alternative measures, the figures reveal.
