A BBC poll commissioned in the wake of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich suggests that a quarter of 18 to 24 year olds do not trust Muslims.

A third of those polled also think that the country would be better off with fewer Muslims in the UK.

The poll comes as a group formed by the government to tackle Islamaphobia says that a growing number of people are prejudiced towards Muslims.

Reporter Sima Kotecha spoke to Carrie Gracey about the findings.

Anisha Patel, a Muslim woman from Leicestershire who wears a niqab said: "The looks and stares we are experiencing are much more hostile than before"
