UK terror experts are now calling for more stringent background checks on people applying for sensitive jobs.

Col Hamish de Bretton Gordon, former head of chemical weapons of NATO and the British Army said, “Security roles at places such as Heathrow are critical – these are the people stopping terrorists putting bombs on planes. We need to be doing more to check the names of employees against terror watch lists”.

He added, “We can’t suggest this sister is in any way sympathetic to her brother’s views, but there have been enough terror cases where relatives have been acting together for the need for these checks to be done” sources reported.
