‘The noises could have been flash bangs because there was smoke as well,’ a witness said.
At this time, police have said “no shots were fired.”
A spokesperson from the police said: “Officers are currently searching the three addresses, and a search is also underway at a fourth address in east London as part of the investigation.
“All four men were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41 of the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2000 and remain in police custody at this time.”
The area has been cordoned off, with several reports that an air ambulance has landed nearby.
