A multi-faith meeting against extremism

Faith leaders in north east London have met this afternoon to discuss how to bring communities together in the wake of last week's terror attacks in France.

There are concerns that the actions of Islamic extremists abroad could cause further divisions between religious groups here in the capital.

The Evening Standard's reporter Rachel Blundy was at the meeting and joined The Evening News to explain the outcomes of the talks.


Huge queues formed in South Kensington this morning as people tried to buy the so-called ‘survivors issue’ of the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo. Two shops in the area were selling the edition, which shows the image of the Muslim Prophet Mohammad on the front cover.

It's believed previous versions of the cartoon led to the attack on the magazine.

London Live went to speak to those trying to buy the magazine, and the owner of the French bookshop selling the publication.
