An investigation by Sky News has found that British kids under the age of 10 are being investigated over their links to far-right groups.

Extremists are using video games and social media to groom children into following their ideology, Sky has discovered.

Home Office figures show a dramatic rise in the number of under-18s referred to the government's counter-terrorism programme.

And for the first time since the data was recorded, there was an equal balance in the number of cases linked to the far-right and those linked to Islamic radicalisation.
