    The head of Counter Terrorism Policing in the North East has spoken about the conviction of Zameer Ghumra.

    Zameer Ghumra
    Quote Message: The dissemination of terrorist publications is always a significant offence, but even more so in this case. Zameer Ghumra willingly abused a position of trust, showing young children a violent and explicit beheading video with no regard for the profound effect the disturbing material may have on them. That act alone is unforgivable." from Det Ch Supt Martin Snowden Counter Terrorism Policing North East
