Intelligence gathering isn’t easy – it’s inevitable that generally accepted processes will fail – Prof Carsten Maple
Professor Carsten Maple is the director of research in Cybersecurity at WMG's Cyber Security Centre (CSC) at the University of Warwick. He said: “The news that MI5 could not have prevented the killing of Lee Rigby according to a report from parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) is not a surprise. Intelligence gathering is no easy task and assessments have to be made regularly about the level of risk posed by an individual.
"The fact that MI5 was aware of Adebolajo and Adebowale prior to the attack, possibly even trying to recruit them, is not enough to condemn the service for failing to prevent his death.", says Dr Christopher Moran of Dept. Politics and International Studies

Dr Tim Lockley is an American Historian. Reacting to the news of developments in the US overnight, he said: "The unrest in Ferguson has to be understood in a historic context of racial tension."
Dr Kimberley Brownlee, an Associate Professor of Legal and Moral Philosophy at the University of Warwick, argues that Julian Assange should allow himself to be extradited to Sweden to face questioning over sexual assault allegations. She claims he can strengthen his cause by allowing the criminal justice process to proceed.
