A team which works with communities to prevent violent extremism in Derby is hosting an on-line discussion.

Over the last few days leaflets and posters featuring a special ode have been handed out to mosques, community centres and business in the city.

People can use their smart phone to scan the code and they will receive a link to the Facebook page to log on to a online discussion tonight between 7pm and 8pm.

It's being run by officers from the Community Engagement Team who have been up and running for the last few years.

Inspector Carl Mortimer from Derbyshire police: " (The issue) is certainly a challenge for us and the purpose of this surgery is that it will give people the opportunity to voice their concerns and get some answers from us in a format where they don't have to come into a police station."

They also hope the Facebook group will entice younger people to come forward anonymously and share what they know too.
