Facebook discovers UK 'fake news' network

Facebook has removed more than 130 accounts, pages and groups it says were part of a UK-based misinformation network.

The company said it was the first time it had taken down a UK-based group targeting messages at British citizens.

The same group set up pages posing both as far-right outlets and anti-fascist activists.

Facebook said it had shared its discovery with law enforcement and the government.
