Two leaders of the far-right English Defence League are to leave the group, it was claimed today.
Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, who set up the anti-Islamist group in 2009, have decided to leave because they can no longer keep extremist elements at bay, think tank Quilliam said.
The organisation, which calls itself the "world's first counter-extremism think tank", is helping Mr Robinson, who is from Luton, move away from the group and put his energy into countering extremism.
It called for other members of the EDL to follow in his footsteps, and for Islamist extremist leaders to also leave their respective groups.
