Terrorists to take lie detector tests

Experts have cast doubt on the government’s plans to use lie-detector tests, as part of new measures to deal with terrorists who are in prison.

The government is being accused of rushing in new anti-terror laws in the wake of the London Bridge attack last November, in which convicted terror offender Usman Khan killed two students.

Ministers say tougher sentences will be introduced and early-releases will be scrapped.
