In the last seven years more than 350 convicted and suspected terrorists have been released from prison, shocking official figures show.

In the year to June 41 convicted terrorists were released along with 12 suspects who were in custody but never sentenced, according to the Home Office.

In total 353 terror criminals and suspects were released between June 2012 and the same period in 2019. From these 245 were convicted of offences.

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) were unable to provide the latest figures of how many have been released in the last six months.

The figures released comes just under one week since the cowardice terror attacker was shot dead  as he wore a fake bomb vest and claimed the lives of two people.

Since the London Bridge terror attack the government has launched an urgent review of prisoners who risk being radicalised along with convicted prisoners who have recently been released from prison.

Security services and the police are probing around 200 known extremists who face bans from various towns and cities. Of these 70 terrorists freed on licence are being probed.

A further 150 who are on the list are being reviewed including those who are soon to be released who were convicted under terrorism laws, but were convicted of lesser offences.
