UK: More than 300 children identified as an extremism risk in just 3 months as fears grow over ISIS recruitment drive

More than 300 children were identified as being at risk of radicalisation in just three months amid growing fears about youngsters being drawn into terrorism.

The total number of people referred to a government programme to tackle recruitment by fanatical groups soared to 796 between June and August, double the figure in the first three months of this year.

Ministers vowed to challenge the ‘twisted narrative’ that is corrupting some young and vulnerable people.
