A 10-year-old Muslim boy who misspelled a word during an English lesson, writing that he lived in a "terrorist house", has been interviewed by police.

The Lancashire primary school pupil meant to write that he lived in a "terraced house".

The boy was reported to the police, in accordance with the 2015 Counter Terrorism and Security Act, which places a higher emphasis on teachers to tell the authorities of any suspected extremist behaviour.
