LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Thursday action was needed to strengthen the foundations of governance in the British Virgin Islands, following a visit by overseas territories minister Amanda Milling to discuss the findings of a critical report.

"It isn't a question of whether something should be done, it is a question of what should be done, action is needed now to strengthen the foundations of the territory," Milling said in a video on Facebook.

Last week a report into governance in the British overseas territory said it should have its constitution suspended, its elected government dissolved and effectively be ruled from London.
