Anti-terror police have refused to say whether two German men arrested at Dover Port are suspected of possessing hostile reconnaissance photography.

Christian David Erkart Heinz Emde, 28, and Robert Baum, 23, both from Germany, were arrested on 15 July.

They have been charged with ‘collection or possession of information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, contrary to Section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000’.

A spokeswoman for the South East Counter Terrorism Unit told Amateur Photographer that police were ‘not able to comment on whether the materials seized include hostile reconnaissance photographs’.

The men appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday and have been remanded in custody to appear at the same court on 24 August.
