The creation of a national DNA database for the whole UK population would pose a major security headache, Andy Kellett, senior research analyst at Butler Group, has warned.

Last week, Kevin Morris, president of the Police Superintendents' Association, said the creation of a compulsory national DNA database would enable the police to solve crimes more quickly and help to prevent them being committed.

But Kellett warned, "The security aspect of this would be paramount - it is something that the government would need to get sorted out up front."
