On Monday’s Newsnight, Richard Watson interviewed Morten Storm, the Danish biker who converted to Islam and travelled to Yemen to study only to abandon the faith and work for seven years as a spy for western intelligence agencies at the heart of al-Qaeda.

In his first TV interview in Britain, the former double-agent speaks about his association with preacher Omar Bakri Muhammad, now banned from the UK, who, according to Storm, encouraged young Muslims to commit terrorism in Europe, and his conversion from Islamist radical to intelligence gatherer for the CIA.
