A security expert has refuted claims there is no evidence of radicalism in universities, arguing 21 are directly linked to the extremism which has led to terrorism. Students “have been recruited to terror” on campuses, said professor Anthony Glees after today’s government guidance on preventing extremism. Professor Glees condemned Universities UK for its “counter-productive” approach after he “presented them with the evidence for this a year ago”. “Now it seems that the government is determined to make sure Universities UK take this problem as seriously as it should be taken,” he told Today.
