PRIME Minister Theresa May said on Friday that Britain was looking into reports of a missing child with dual British nationality after a suspected Islamist militant killed 14 people and wounded scores of others in Barcelona.

“We do believe that a number of British nationals were caught up in the attack, and we are urgently looking into reports of a child believed missing who is a British dual national,” she said in a televised statement.

May also said that Britain would look carefully at the powers the police and security agencies needed to tackle the common threat from militant attacks.
