British spies create a secret Minority Report-style research unit to root out traitors working for Russia and China

BRITAIN’S spymasters have created a secret Minority Reports-style research unit to root out traitors working for Russia and China.

The unit, staffed by forensic psychologists, will identify agents planted in British intelligence by hostile states.

The new technology is similar to the science in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise was able to see crimes before they happened

The move follows repeated attempts by Russia and China to infiltrate MI5 and MI6, sources said.

In Tom Cruise’s sci-fi blockbuster Minority Report, police use psychics to identify and arrest criminals before crimes are actually committed.

The forensic psychologists in the new unit, which will be based at MI5 HQ next to the Thames, will try to do something similar and identify spies at risk of becoming double agents.

They will look for signs of behavior change, such as: B. joining radical chat groups on the Internet or trial runs for an attack.

Details of the unit were revealed in an advert on MI5’s website seeking experts in the “application of psychology to homeland security”.

Colonel Phil Ingram, a former military intelligence officer, said: “You will help spies protect our secrets.”
