Anti-terror plans published

The Government's controversial anti-terror measures will be published in full today, with Home Secretary Charles Clarke already signalling possible concessions on plans to detain suspects for three months without charge.
The Terrorism Bill could also make glorifying or indirectly encouraging terrorism an offence carrying up to seven years' imprisonment.

The publication comes as the most senior judge in England and Wales, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, issued a warning against ministers trying to 'browbeat' the courts over how legislation should be applied.
