A schoolboy aged 12 has been identified as an al-Qaeda inspired extremist after sending beheading videos to his classmates, police have disclosed.
Anti-terrorism chiefs have said the example revealed how violent extremism is spreading “like a virus infecting young minds”.
The blond, white schoolboy from West Yorkshire is among 120 people being dealt with by police in a new anti-terrorism scheme targeting al-Qa’eda inspired youths.
The number of suspects uncovered so far – 124 - was "higher than expected", Sir Norman added.
They have been referred to the police and other agencies by schools, community leaders, mosques and others.
"We are trying to intervene early. We are trying to snuff out violent extremism," said Sir Norman.
