The Government's anti-extremism body Prevent is failing to tackle the 'Hamas support network' behind pro-Palestine protests in the UK, an independent counter-terror reviewer has warned. 

Sir William Shawcross said the anti-extremism scheme was failing to identify people sympathising with Islamist terror in the wake of the October 7 attack.

He warned that the scheme continued to have a bias towards tackling the rise in Right-wing terrorists and that the Gaza war in fueling sympathy for Islamist terror in Britain.

He added that members of the 'underlying Hamas support network' within the UK were responsible for promoting the mass pro-Palestinian marches which have taken to the streets in recent months.

Pro-Palestine marches have been taking place every Saturday in London since the war in Gaza started.  

In a bombshell report published last year, Sir William found that Prevent repeatedly 'failed' to identify attackers.

The Home Office said it had implemented almost all of his proposals and eventually would enact them all. 

The scheme places public bodies, such as schools and the police, under a legal duty to identify people in danger of turning to extremism.
