Counter-terrorism measures to include banning ransoms

The "time is right" for police, security and intelligence agencies to be given more powers to defend the UK, Home Secretary Theresa May has said.

Unveiling a new counter-terrorism bill, Mrs May said the UK was in a security struggle "on many fronts".

Under the bill, UK-based insurance companies are to be banned from covering the cost of terrorist ransoms.
