An Anglican bishop who received threats after comments about Islamic extremism has spoken on the importance of the UK's Christian heritage.

The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, was threatened after claiming Islamic extremism made some places "no-go areas" for non-Muslims.

In an exclusive interview, he told BBC South East that Christianity "is the conscience of this nation".
