Two men and a woman have been charged with terrorism offences in the central English city of Birmingham, local police say.

The West Midlands police said in a statement on Thursday (local time) that the three had been charged with offences related to the financing or preparation of "acts of terrorism".

British police arrested five people last week as part of an investigation which a security source said was linked to the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Four were arrested in Birmingham, central England, and one at London's Gatwick Airport.
