Updated anti-extremism strategy published

Home Secretary Theresa May has launched the government's updated strategy for tackling terrorism by saying there needs to be better focus on preventing extremism at community levels.

Some of the £63m annual budget had reached the extremist organisations it should have been confronting, she said.
