The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU)

The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) in the Metropolitan Police hold a ‘filter list’ that contains URL links to terrorist content, which can be provided to organisations, usually through a filtering provider, to enable them to block access to terrorist content on the ‘filter list’.   


This police assessed list of unlawful terrorist content online represents content which has been assessed by specialist police caseworkers as breaching UK terrorism legislation.  These URLs are referred to the hosting sites to request  removal and remain on the CTIRU filter list until such time as they are no longer hosting terrorist content.

Further Information provided by UK Gov:

Interim code of practice on terrorist content and activity online

Report online material promoting terrorism or extremism
