More action is need to tackle the "serious problem" of British jihadists travelling to fight in Iraq and Syria, according to Labour's shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper.
While she welcomed Home Secretary Theresa May's plans to toughen laws to tackle British nationals who travel to fight in Iraq and Syria, Cooper said there was a lack of support for community led approaches to preventing radicalisation.
She said: ""More action is needed to respond to the serious problem of people travelling to fight with Isil..... There remains no detail on things like civil powers to tackle extremists or extremist groups for people to consider."
She added: "The Home Secretary also needs to respond to the concerns raised by the current and previous Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation about the decision to weaken control orders, where they have advised that stronger measures should be put in place."
