A new Muslim group in Bristol aimed at tackling Islamophobia and extremism has held its inaugural meeting.

The Muslim Forum aims to be "...the most diverse and representative forum the Muslim community in Bristol and the South West has ever seen".

It brings together independently constituted Muslim organisations and Mosques in the city to tackle what it describes as issues of common concern.

About 30 organisations have signed up, including most of the city's mosques.
