    The British government has unveiled a new plan to tackle violent indoctrination in prisons.

    A special task force will identify vulnerable offenders in an effort to prevent small-time criminals from being inspired by fellow inmates to commit serious crimes when they are released.

    It comes in the wake of an attack at the Houses of Parliament two weeks ago.

    Al Jazeera’s Neave Barker reports from London.
