Home Secretary Sajid Javid has revealed plans for MI5 to declassify and share information on UK citizens suspected of having terrorist sympathies.
“Key” biographical data will be given to neighbourhood police, councils and the charity commission in London, Midlands and Manchester trial schemes.
Last year’s wave of terror attacks showed the need for wider and more local exchange of information, he said.
There must be no “safe spaces” for terror suspects anywhere, he said.
Dozens of terrorists ‘to be freed from jail’
Dozens of terrorists are poised to be released from prison, the security minister has admitted, as the government announced a new strategy for combating terrorism.
Ben Wallace said the Home Office would put resources into monitoring convicted terrorists after their release and make efforts to help them “disengage” from extremism.
