Tackling extremist material online

Terrorist and extremist material inspires hatred.

The internet and social media provide many opportunities for those with extreme views to target young or vulnerable individuals.

Tackling extremist material is important to protect people and prevent offences that incite or promote terrorism. The police depend on information from members of the public to help keep us safe. The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit put considerable effort into removing terrorist and extremist material.

You can help stop this presence spreading by reporting it.
