Britain recruits 1,900 extra spies to tackle ISIS

London: Britain has recruited 1,900 additional spies to protect the country from Paris-style attacks.

Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed that its intelligence agencies have unearthed at least seven terror cells in the country in six months.

The country's intelligence services will receive a major boost in funding in response to the ISIS threat, the Mail Online reported on Monday.

There will be a 15 percent increase in the 12,700-strong staff of the intelligence agencies with the recruitment of an additional 1,900 personnel.

The additional spending will help “combat those who would destroy us and our values' and allow Britons to 'continue with our way of life we hold so dear”, the Mail Online quoted him as saying.
