New terrorism legislation?
THE Chief Coroner has called for tough new laws to tackle extremist propaganda in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack.
Mark Lucraft QC said current legislation means it may be impossible for police or MI5 to act against fanatics even when “the material is of the most offensive and shocking character”.
He suggested new laws could be introduced to tackle extremist material like legislation has criminalised the most offensive pornography.
He said: “I have formed the view that consideration ought to be given to legislating for possession of the most serious material glorifying terrorism.”
