Four men were arrested in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire on Tuesday on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack.

Police cordoned off Sheffield Road in Chesterfield, where a 31-year-old man was arrested earlier in the day. Nearby homes were then evacuated. “It was quite scary for local people in the area,” said one local resident, Connah Evans.

A further three suspects aged 22, 36 and 41 were also detained in Burngreave and Meersbrook areas and were taken for questioning in West Yorkshire.
