A man arrested on terrorist charges was 'gregarious' according to neighbours.
'I don't know how the security people could have missed him,' said Mildred Windle (67), president of her village's women's bowling club, chairman of the village WI, member of the parish church council and secretary of the Over Sixties club.
'He was forever associating with folk in the village - organizing fetes and barbecues and being nice and friendly with everyone. He was an extrovert and quite gregarious.'
Criminologist Dr Magnum Williams, speaking from a London conference of 350 criminologists, explained that gregariousness was one of the danger signs of terrorist tendencies.
Bert Robbins, who lives opposite the suspect, said:
'Myself, I don't go out much, but one day I saw the chap talking to his neighbour over the garden fence.
'I knew then he was Al-Qaida,' he said.
