Election 2017: Tackling Radicalisation And Terrorism

6 June 2017, 06:14

Anti-Terror Police

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


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.
