The Deputy Leader of Birmingham City Council has said more work needs to be done to encourage people in the community to speak to the police about their concerns.
_"No one wants to see their children radicalised. No one wants to see their children blow themselves up in terrorist attrocities. We need to get to the point where communities when they are aware of this kind of thing are prepared to talk to the police." _
