THREE men arretsed by police during a routine stop of a vehicle on the M1 in Sheffield are due at court today charged with terrorism and firearms offences.

Jewel Uddin, aged 26, Omar Mohammed Khan, 27, and Mohammed Hasseen, 23, are to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London to answer charges under the 2006 Terrorism Act.

The defendants, all from Sparkhill in Birmingham, were arrested last week along with four other men who are still being questioned by West Midlands Police.

Last week’s arrests followed a routine stop of a vehicle by police on the M1 near Sheffield in South Yorkshire on Saturday, June 30.

The car was impounded on suspicion of having no insurance and firearms and other material were later found inside.

Those who remain in custody are a 24-year-old from Moseley, Birmingham; a 22-year-old man from Alum Rock, Birmingham; a 22-year-old from Smethwick and a man aged 43 from the Kirklees area.
