UK Terror Chief says Muslim communities are fueling an unprecedented threat from extremists ‘in our midst’

In an apparent reference to illegal Islamic schools, Mr Basu said ‘unregulated’ education was a breeding ground for terror in the UK

Isolated communities are fuelling an unprecedented terror threat, a senior police chief warned last night.

Neil Basu said the main danger came from Islamic-State inspired extremists ‘in our midst’.

In an apparent reference to illegal Islamic schools, he said ‘unregulated’ education and home schooling were a breeding ground for home-grown terror. The counter-terror chief warned of the danger from extremists in ‘segregated, isolated’ communities.
