Mark Rowley: IS are trying to create a 'corrupt cult'

Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Mark Rowley, has said there are now 35% more arrests linked to counter-terrorism than ever before.

Talking specifically about the group Islamic State, Mr Rowley told the BBC's Andrew Marr: "We're dealing with a group that's trying to create... a corrupt cult.... They're trying to attract misfits, criminals and the vulnerable".
