Gordon Brown orders UK airport security review

An urgent review of airport security has been ordered by the Prime Minister after the failed attempt to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas day.

Gordon Brown described the plot as another "wake up call" and he has called an international conference to discuss terrorism in Yemen, where it is thought the bomber was trained.

Daniel Sandford reports.
