BOMB-MAKING guides are still on Youtube, showing would-be terrorists how to make devices to maim and kill.
A Sunday Mirror investigation found 3,000 clips at our fingertips, despite a pledge by owners Google to pull down material promoting terror.
One video lists a combination of everyday items bought in supermarkets used in the manufacturing process. Others mention a ricin poison plot.
After the Paris attacks, a French counter-terrorism official told how his team spent an afternoon learning how to make DIY explosives. He said: “In half an hour, we had made an explosive. Half an hour later, we had blown it up. And the explosion was big.”
Yvette Cooper said: “It is outrageous. Social media must get a grip of illegal material.”
In a statement Youtube said: “We act quickly to remove flagged content that incites violence and terminate terrorist organisation accounts.”
