Police Hunt For Wanted Terror Suspect

A wanted terror suspect, who is subject to a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (Tpim) notice, was last seen leaving a mosque after changing into a burka in Acton on Friday.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, 27, was seen in CCTV images leaving with his face and body fully covered by the Islamic garment.

He is the second person to breach a Tpim.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The Counter Terrorism Command immediately launched inquiries to trace Mr Mohamed and these continue.

“Ports and borders were notified with his photograph and details circulated nationally. Public safety remains our priority."

The Metropolitan Police advised anyone who saw Mr Mohamed not to approach him and contact 999 immediately.
