Violent Islamists should be treated like paedophiles and have their children taken away from them, Britain’s top counter terrorist officer said last night.

Mark Rowley called for police, social workers and family court judges to step in and protect the vulnerable families of twisted extremists.

The Scotland Yard chief officer said terrorist propaganda and sexual abuse were ‘equally wicked’ forces for children.

But, he warned, extremists were often left to care for impressionable youngsters despite convictions for violence and spreading hate.
