Google tightens measures to remove extremist content on YouTube

There should be no place for terrorist content on our services.

In the wake of atrocities in London Bridge and Manchester, Prime Minister Theresa May has urged social media companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter to take down terrorist content, agreeing measures with G7 leaders in April and a new plan with French President Emmanuel Macron last week.

Google's also going to throw its advertising expertise at users, by redirecting those deemed "potential Isis recruits" based on content they seek online "towards anti-terrorist videos that can change their minds about joining". "We are committed to playing our part".

We have also recently committed to working with industry colleagues-including Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter-to establish an global forum to share and develop technology and support smaller companies and accelerate our joint efforts to tackle terrorism online.

Labour's Yvette Cooper welcomed the "step foward".

"The Select Committee recommended that they should be more proactive in searching for - and taking down - illegal and extremist content, and to invest more of their profits in moderation".
