Extremism taskforce to be set up after Woolwich

A top level taskforce is to be set up in the wake of the killing of a soldier in Woolwich to "look again" at the government's strategy for dealing with radicalisation and extremism.

The special committee, to be chaired by the prime minister, will include senior cabinet ministers and security chiefs.

Downing Street sources say it will "build on" Labour's Prevent Strategy.

Robin Brant reports.
