After a search of the vehicle they were travelling in, they were arrested on suspicion of preparing acts of terrorism, contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

A vehicle and several digital devices were seized.

Searches of properties in Glasgow and Clydebank have taken place.

Both men were released on bail pending further enquiries.
