It is not clear which of the two men - both from Huddersfield - was the one arrested in Sheffield.

The men were detained on suspicion of offences under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act and the pair have been in custody since June 1.

At the time of the arrest a spokeswoman said the arrests were not connected to the Manchester Arena attack which killed 22 people and injured more than 60 others.

A 23-year-old Sheffield man arrested by counter-terrorism officers on suspicion of assisting an offender was released under investigation earlier in the inquiry.
