A member of the Islamic State cell known as 'The Beatles' due to their English accents has been charged with terrorist offences.

Aine Davis was charged after being deported from Turkey to the UK this week.

A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police said in a statement: "A 38-year-old man has been charged with various terrorism offences following an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

"Aine Leslie Davis, (11.02.84) of no fixed address, was charged with offences contrary to sections 15, 17 and 57 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

"He has been remanded in police custody and is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later this morning, Thursday August 11.

"On Wednesday August 10, officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command arrested a 38-year-old man at Luton Airport after he arrived into the UK on a flight from Turkey.

"He was taken to a south London police station and subsequently charged with the above offences."

The IS cell comprised four British members from West London who chose to fight for the terrorist group in Syria where their duties included guarding Western hostages.

They are accused of the being responsible for a series of beheadings in Iraq and Syria, including the disturbing murder videos of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning.
