Theresa May: UK 'needs extremism strategy'

Home Secretary Theresa May has said authorities need to look at the ideology which drives young people to travel abroad and join extremist groups.

Ms May said it was important to look not just at terrorism but "extremism across the whole spectrum".

On Friday, Metropolitan Police said they believed three London schoolgirls were travelling to Syria via Turkey, to join Islamic State militants.
