Preventing young extremism

The Think program is crucial to the safety of this country

– Graham Foulkes

Good Morning Britain has been given exclusive access to a scheme which is tackling extremism in schools.

For the first time, cameras have been allowed to film a group of young people aged 13-16 who could be deemed to be at risk of radicalisation in a workshop attempting to prevent this.

Graham Foulkes, who lost his son David in the 7/7 bombs, is one of the Think program speakers and joined us today.

Rochester and Strood by-election begins

Voters in Rochester and Strood go to the polls today in a pivotal by-election which could signal further success for the UK Independence Party (Ukip).

Former Conservative MP Mark Reckless, who represented Rochester and Strood since the constituencies creation in 2010, is standing for re-election as a Ukip MP. But what kind of place would is Rochester and Strood and who will the winner be representing?

  • Rochester and Strood is in Kent, on the Thames estuary
  • The working population earns close to the national average wage of £26,500.
  • Rochester and Strood has been earmarked for a lot of future development. Two Rochester brownfield sites (area previously used for commercial purposes) are the largest redevelopments in the Thames gateway.
  • Rochester also has historical value - a medieval castle built in 11th century was used by Henry VIII to privately meet Anne of Cleeves before their disastrous marriage
  • Charles Dickens was a fan of Rochester - it features in his work more than any other city apart from London

Doctors to get guidelines for spotting cancer early

Healthcare professionals will get fresh guidelines on how to spot cancer early, an NHS advisory board has revealed.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) will publish advice on which symptoms "best predict cancer," clear tests and how long people should wait before they see a specialist. The guidelines have to go to public consultation first but will be adopted by May next year.

Health chiefs believe spotting cancer early could save thousands of lives.

In a separate but related story, Lynda Bellingham's son, Michael Peluso, has said doctors "missed" his mother's colon cancer and a colonoscopy would have helped an early diagnosis. In an interview with the Mirror, the 31-year-old said the actress had been asking doctors for a colonoscopy long before she was diagnosed.

Dr Hilary Jones joined us to discuss the new cancer guidelines.

Six men banned from contacting under-18 girls

Six Birmingham men have been banned from having any contact with girls under the age of 18, it has emerged.

Birmingham social services took "innovative" legal action to have the group of men served with long-term injunctions, preventing them from having any contact with girls under the age of 18 that they do not already know well. Police and social services brought the case after concerns were raised about the welfare of a vulnerable 17-year-old girl.

Mr Justice Keehan granted injunctions against Mohammed Anjam, Omar Ahmed, Naseem Khan, Mohammed Javed, Shah Alam and Sajid Hussain - who all come from the Birmingham area. The Judge said the men could be identified, despite police objections, as there was "high public interest" in the case. None of the men have any previous convictions.
