Police investigate schoolboy 'terrorist' spelling error

A 10-year-old boy has been investigated by police for saying he lived in a "terrorist house".

His family say it was an innocent mistake during an English lesson at school, and that he meant to say "terraced house".

They are demanding an apology from the authorities.

The police say they are not going to take any further action.

The BBC Asian Network's Rahila Bano reports from Salford.
