A former Foreign Office minister has broken ranks and called for the phased withdrawal of British troops from Afghanistan.

Kim Howells, who had ministerial responsibility for the country until last year and now heads the Commons Intelligence and Security Committee, told The Guardian: "It would be better to bring home the great majority of our fighting men and women and concentrate, instead, on using the money saved to secure our own borders."
