A British woman arrested by counter-terrorism officers at Luton Airport earlier this week has been charged with an identity document offence.

Jamila Henry, 21, was detained at a bus station in Ankara, Turkey, by Turkish police who believe she was trying to get to Syria.

Ms Henry was deported and arrested by Met police as she stepped off her flight from Istanbul at Luton Airport.

She is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later.

She is charged with possession of an identity document with intent, under the Identity Documents Act, police said.
