Update on Woolwich

Update on Woolwich

Following the horrific events in Woolwich on 22 May 2013, the Prime Minister has confirmed that an Extremism Taskforce is to be established. It is anticipated that universities will be one area of focus for the taskforce.

In a separate development, following media reports linking one of the suspects to the University of Greenwich, the University has launched an investigation to establish what links he had to the institution, and whether there has been any past or present extremism on campus.
