Emwazi neighbour: 'I could have been radicalised'

Allan Hennessy, who grew up in the same community as Mohammed Emwazi, the Islamic mililant widely known as "Jihadi John", says he could have been equally radicalised as he grew up "disaffected" in a neighbourhood where he only knew "five or six" white people.

The law student, whose brother went to the same school as Emwazi and whose families attended the same mosque, says a lack of integration was a source for the alienation he felt when he was younger.

Mr Hennessy was speaking to the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire - see the full interview here.
