Reda Hassaine gets citizenship

Among the new Britons taking part in citizenship ceremonies today will be one man who has already put his life on the line to protect his adopted country.

Reda Hassaine will stand in Islington Town Hall, North London, to affirm allegiance to the Queen and pledge to give his “loyalty to the United Kingdom and to respect its rights and freedoms”.

I arrived at Islington town hall a bit late to catch Reda Hassaine. Shame. I was wondering if he could fill me in on events in Finsbury park from his angle. He has a very interesting story.

I've been chatting to a few media organisations about Atilla's story and I've been advised to disable my videos for the meantime.
