Capital's been speaking to parliamentary election candidates for the Derby South seat on how they'll work to tackle radicalisation to stop more young people turning to terrorism.
In December, four people were arrested in police raids at a house in Leopold Street, Normanton, following intelligence of a credible terror plot being masterminded there.
One of the men picked up by anti-terror officers was charged with plotting an act of terrorism.
Following on from the attacks in Manchester and London in the last three months, and hearing from people living in Normanton that they're concerned more people could be being radicalised in the area, Capital's been hearing from the candidates in the area on how they'll work to tackle extremism if they win the seat on Thursday 8 June.
The candidates are:
LABOUR - Margaret Beckett
UKIP - Alan Graves
LIBERAL DEMOCRAT - Joe Naitta
GREEN - Ian Sleeman
CONSERVATIVE - Evonne Williams
Capital contacted the Conservative party to speak with Evonne Williams for her views on our radicalisation report, but we did not receive a response.
