'I'm ashamed I was a far-right extremist'

The number of far-right extremists on the UK's anti-radicalisation scheme has risen significantly, latest figures show.

The government's Prevent programme says that a third of the cases referred to it are people who are suspected of having extreme right-wing views that could turn into violence.
