“Muslims have been calling for a long time for the police to come into these areas where drug taking is rife.”

The 49-year-old then hit out at Prime Minister Theresa May who pledged a “tougher approach on terror” and said her “guns ho” stance would not help.

She also claimed the government pulled officers off the streets too soon after the deadly Manchester Arena attack, which left 22 concertgoers dead.

Ms Booth added: “I wanted to see the police stay on the streets.

“I think it was a mistake to take the police off the streets that early.”

Following her appearance on the programme, Met Police has identified two of the three terrorists behind London Bridge terrorist attack.
