Just after 6pm BST police arrested a man at the Snow Hill rail station in Birmingham under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act. The station was evacuated and cordoned off because of two suspicious suitcases found at the station. The suitcases were examined and later found not to contain explosives. The BBC reports that the man who was arrested will not be facing charges.
Snow Hill station re-opened at around 8pm BST.
