London - British police say seven men have been arrested on suspicion of terrorist offenses after a routine vehicle search turned up firearms and weapons.

Scotland Yard said on Friday that the arrests followed a routine vehicle stop on the M1 motorway in South Yorkshire, England on 30 June.

It said "firearms, offensive weapons and other material" were later found hidden in the car, which prompted police to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and other suspects.

Police said three of the men were arrested on Tuesday, three on Wednesday and one on Thursday. Six of them are in their twenties and from the West Midlands area of England, while one is from West Yorkshire.

The men have been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

    Once again the mooslims are plotting to terrorize decent people. But I for one think both england and the Muslims deserve each other. I think England should embrace sharia, and support the conversion of england to part of the Caliphate, rather do it in public than behind closed doors. The english have always been kissing the a$$es of the muslims anyway. Now the Freedom fighters have arrived on their own doorstep and they wonder why??
