A 24-year-old man arrested last week on suspicion of terror-related offences has been released without charge.
The man was arrested in Cowley early last Tuesday as part of an investigation into those supporting fighting in Syria.
He was held by counter-terrorism police in Manchester on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Greater Manchester Police – which originally said the man was 29 – released him on Friday along with another man and a woman.
Those details were not revealed to the Mail until yesterday.
A 29-year-old man from Manchester has been charged.
