The force said in a statement: “All five are being held at a police station in the West Midlands.

“The arrests were carried out by West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit in conjunction with CTP North East and East Midlands CTIU.

“A number of properties are being searched in connection with the arrests.

“The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led.”

Those arrested were:

A 23-year-old man from Halifax
A 22-year-old woman also from Halifax
