More of Bristol's Muslim youngsters could be radicalised, warns counter-terrorism police inspector
by Michael Yong
More youngsters could be radicalised and headed to Syria to join terror factions, a police inspector has warned.
Detective Chief Inspector Patrick McGowan said there has been a surge in the number of young people who are being groomed on the internet by extremist groups.
It comes as Avon and Somerset police launch a film focusing on members of Bristol's local Muslim communities. Last October, 15-year-old schoolgirl Yusra Hussien from Easton was thought to have travelled to Syria to take part in the war.
