Islam's northern converts on switching their faith


Islam is the fastest growing religion in Britain and most Muslim converts are white.

New research suggests more than 5,000 people converted to Islam in Britain last year.

Richard Peppiatt meets Amy Sall from Middlesbrough, who converted to Islam.

She talks about some of the issues she has encountered in an area where only 4% of the population are Muslims.

Inside Out North East and Cumbria can be seen on BBC One at 19:30 GMT on Monday, 31 October and nationwide on the BBC iPlayer for seven days afterwards.
