Parents warned to look out for signs of online radicalisation during coronavirus lockdown | London Evening Standard

Parents, relatives and friends were today urged to raise the alarm if they fear that children are being radicalised during the lockdown as the Met warned that tip-offs about suspected extremists have plummeted.

The decline in referrals to the Prevent scheme, which seeks to divert vulnerable young people before they are lured into extremism, has occurred partly because schools and colleges are closed. Both are normally key sources of alerts.
