More police on streets after mosque damage

Extra patrols are on the streets of Kent tonight after a mosque in Medway was vandalised. It happened hours after the murder of a soldier in London. The local MP has appealed for calm, saying the attack in Woolwich should not be allowed to divide the community.

Meanwhile, senior Kent Police officers have been meeting with community leaders to discuss the incident in Gillingham.

We speak to: Issa Rumjaun, chairman of Kent Muslim Welfare Association; Kent Police Assistant Chief Constable Gary Beautridge; Anwar Khan from the Kent Muslim Welfare Association and Rehman Chishti, MP for Gillingham and Rainham.
