    Islamic extremists could escape prosecution and instead receive therapy and counselling under new Government plans to "deradicalise" religious fanatics.

    The Home Office is to announce an extra u12.5 million to support new initiatives to try to stop extremism spreading.

    The central element of the Home Office plan is a new national "deradicalisation"
