David Anderson QC, the Government’s independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, said Magag would have found it easier to slip away from his watchers once back in the capital. Writing on Twitter, he asked: “Could he have absconded so easily from the West Country, where he was made to live when under a control order between 2009 and 2011?”

Quoted from the Standard, sentiments which Yvette Cooper echoed today.
