Anti-Terror Chief To Probe 'Muslim School Plot'
A former anti-terror chief has been appointed to investigate allegations of a hardline Islamist takeover plot of Birmingham schools, sparking criticism it would send the wrong message.
One of Britain's top police officers said Michael Gove's appointment of Peter Clarke, previously head of the Metropolitan Police's counter-terrorism unit, was "desperately unfortunate".
Mr Clarke, who led the investigation into the July 7 bombings, is to work with Birmingham City Council to "analyse evidence of extremist infiltration in both academies and council-run schools".
