Woolwich attack: Theresa May fears thousands will turn to extremism

Thousands have the potential to be turned into Muslim extremists, Home Secretary Theresa May has warned.

She was announcing planned new laws designed to fight terrorism, including banning orders for hate preachers who manage to avoid proscription and new internet controls.

But she faces a battle with Lib Dems over her Communications Data Bill - the Snoopers' Charter - which would allow police and security services to monitor all texts, emails and other internet traffic.
