London Attacks: Muslim peer Baroness Warsi says 'every known radical should be watched 24/7'

One of Britain's most high-profile Muslim politicians has said every known radical individual should be under constant surveillance, during a testy interview with our host Julia Hartley-Brewer.

Baroness Warsi also drew incredulity from our presenter when she said Britain has had a great record on terrorism - despite suffering three major terror attacks in three months.

Wari spoke to Julia after the terror attacks in London Bridge last night, which killed at least seven people and sent fresh shockwaves throughout the British capital.

Warsi praised the Government's response to last night's terror attack, and said many of the problems we've seen in recent months are due to the fact that successive governments have ignored the recommendations of anti-terror experts.

The interview became particularly heated when Warsi suggested surveillance for every single person known to hold extremist views, with Julia pointing out this would be a hugely complex and costly operation. Warsi then expressed annoyance when Julia repeatedly asked her what everyday people, who have no radical connections, can do to fight terrorism - a question to which the interviewee struggled to find an answer.

Listen to the interview above.
