The number of white terror suspects being arrested in the UK has outstripped those of Asian appearance for the second year in a row.
Official figures showed that that 117 white people were arrested on suspicion of terror offences in 2019, compared with 111 Asian suspects and 21 black suspects.
“The proportion of white people arrested exceeded the proportion of Asian people arrested for the second consecutive year, having not done previously since 2004,” a Home Office document said.
The change comes after increased police operations against far-right extremists, including members of National Action.
The neo-Nazi terrorist group was banned in 2016 but split into factions that operated under different names, whose members were later arrested in mass raids.
