- Anti-terror police stopped the pair at the Bedfordshire airport yesterday
- They were both arrested on suspicion of 'the preparation of terrorists act'
- The man is still being questioned while the woman has been bailed
A man and woman have been arrested on suspicion of terror offences.
The pair, both aged 35, were stopped at Luton Airport on Wednesday before being questioned by officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command.
Police confirmed the arrests are related to suspected travel to Syria.
The man remains in custody while the woman has been bailed pending further enquiries.
The couple are understood to live with their children in a semi-detached house in Luton.
Officers from the Met and Bedfordshire Police raided the home at around 4pm on Wednesday.
Neighbours saw officers in forensic clothing remove computers from the building.
The police were still in the property today and officers are on duty outside.
One women neighbour said: 'They are a Bangladeshi family and moved in about two years ago.
'They are very quiet and don't get involved with other people. They don't mix or communicate. There are three or four children. I have seen the wife take them to school.
'The police have not told us what they are doing. They have taken computers away and are in white suits, so must still be looking for something.'
Another woman said: 'The wife is very friendly. I have not lived here very long and so don't know them, but I think they have several children. I don't know what the husband does for a job.'
One man said: 'They are a very nice friendly family. I do not know what this is all about. The police are outside but are keeping us in the dark.'
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: 'Officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command have arrested two people, a man and a woman, both aged 35, on suspicion of the preparation of terrorists act contrary to section 5 of Terrorism Act 2006.
'The pair were arrested after being stopped at Luton Airport on Wednesday, 26 October.
'The man remains in custody; the woman has been bailed pending further enquiries.
The arrests are related to suspected travel to Syria.'
