A man has been charged by police in Manchester with two offences under the Terrorism Act.

Habib Ahmed, 26, of Elmfield Street, Cheetham Hill, was arrested on 23 August as part of an on-going anti-terrorism investigation.

He is charged with keeping electronic records relating to potential targets and undertaking weapons training.
