Radicalisation a risk for 'thousands' - Theresa May

Help

Potentially "thousands" of people in the UK are at risk of radicalisation, Home Secretary Theresa May has told the BBC.

She said those at risk were at "different points on what could be a path to violent extremism", and a taskforce would look at whether new powers were needed to tackle radicalisation.

Meanwhile three more arrests have been made in connection with the killing of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, after the arrests of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale on Wednesday.
