Police have executed warrants in Burnham today (Thursday) as part of an investigation into the possession of explosives.
Thames Valley Police (TVP) raided a property in The Fairway at 11am this morning, and conducted operations at the London Clancy Industrial Warehouse site off Britwell Road, Burnham at 1pm.
Further searches are ongoing.
A 41-year-old man from Burnham has been arrested on suspicion of making explosive substances for unlawful purpose. He is currently being held in police custody.
TVP said that this was not a counter-terrorism operation.
The Fairway was closed during the operation, but has since re-opened.
Inspector Brendan Murray said: “I understand this warrant may cause concern to local residents but I want to reassure the community that the road was closed as a precautionary measure.
“There are ongoing searches and residents may see officers in protective equipment. Police dogs have also been at the scene to help with the searches, which may take a number of days.
