London, Dec.1 (ANI): British Home Secretary and other ministers of the Gordon Brown Government have said that the country will overhaul its anti-terror plans to cope with a Mumbai-style atrocity, the Sun reports. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said the UK had to learn from the attacks.
We need to revise the work we do protecting crowded places. We will look carefully at the implications, she said, and added that reports that some of the Mumbai terrorists were British had been retracted but the investigation was ongoing.
