Police reveal 'terror inquiry' pressure

Police are being "stretched" by an "exceptionally high" number of inquiries into Islamist-related extremism, Scotland Yard has said.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley also said "dozens" of UK families had sought police help in stopping relatives travelling to Syria.

Mark Rowley spoke to Jim Naughtie about the figures.
