The security services were facing difficult questions last night over how at least one of the London Bridge terrorists slipped through the intelligence net.
It emerged that the 27-year-old Muslim extremist known to friends as 'Abz' appeared in a TV documentary last year about British jihadis – and was involved in a filmed altercation with police after an ISIS flag was unfurled in Regent's park, London.
He was caught on camera alongside two notorious preachers who were well known to police and intelligence officials because of their extremist views.
Amid a series of revelations last night, it was claimed that a friend of the Watford-born suspect had reported him to the anti-terror hotline after he became radicalised by watching extremist videos on YouTube.
It was also alleged that police were warned about the suspect radicalising children in a local park two years ago.
This is yet more support for the argument that known extremists should be interned until they are no longer deemed to be a threat or agree to be deported to any country which will have them. At the very least they should be held for 90 days and required to report to the authorities weekly after that. It's sheer lunacy to let these people roam the streets when we have neither the manpower or the capability to supervise them.
It's time for a rethink and to decide whose human rights are more important, the public or the extremists who are totally opposed to the west and our way of life.
