Children of man convicted of terrorism offences to be assessed for radicalisation

Bosses at Luton Borough Council want to know whether the man’s children have been exposed to a “risk of radicalisation”

The children of a man convicted of terrorism offences should be assessed by social services specialists to see if they have been radicalised, senior judges have said.

Bosses at Luton Borough Council want to know whether the man’s children have been exposed to a “risk of radicalisation” and to consider what support could be offered.

They took legal action and asked a judge to rule that specialist assessments should be carried out.

A High Court judge decided not to order assessments after the man and his partner objected. But three Court of Appeal judges have now ruled that assessments should be carried out.
