Tommy Robinson has explained why he felt it necessary to leave the EDL to work with the Quilliam Foundation - the anti-extremism think-tank.

Speaking for the first time with BBC Radio 5 live's Nicky Campbell, the group's former leader said: "This is a step forward, not a step back."

"Whilst I want to lead a revolution against Islamist ideology, I don't want to lead a revolution against Muslims."
