Exclusive: Prevent launches campaign to combat white far-right extremism

Communities Editor

For years, critics of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, the Prevent programme, have claimed it stigmatises the Muslim community. But last year, the number of people referred to Prevent over concerns about far-right extremism rose by more than a third.

This programme has been given exclusive access to the first Prevent group aimed at a group of mothers from predominantly white areas of Bradford. Channel 4 News has been speaking to them about why an increasing number of young, white people are vulnerable to radicalisation.
