COMPUTER disks offering advice on how to kill people with a single blow and how to make bombs and poisons are circulating in Britain.

One of the disks - The Jolly Roger Cookbook - was bought at a Birmingham car boot sale for pounds 1 and more than 10,000 are thought to have been brought into the country from the US.

The disk also gives details on how to bug telephones, make LSD, grow marijuana and commit credit card fraud. It includes advice for children on making hoax bomb calls and names a chemical that can be bought over the counter to be used in explosives.

Police have said they are unable to take action against people importing or selling copies of the disk.

But Dame Jill Knight, the Conservative MP for Edgbaston, said she planned to raise the matter at a House of Commons committee.
