The Cookie Monster is being used by neo-Nazis in Berlin to recruit children, according to local police.

A far-right activist was arrested last month for handing out extremist leaflets to children while dressed as the Sesame Street character.

Meanwhile, Labour MEP candidate Glyn Ford has warned that electoral threshold changes mean that German neo-Nazis could be elected to the European Parliament for the first time in May.
