By Andrew Osborn and Peter Griffiths LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will clear Chinese telecoms equipment firm Huawei to run a UK-based cyber security center if it agrees to tighter rules to allay spying and hacking fears, a person familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

Australias government upheld a ban in October on Huawei bidding for work on its National Broadband Network, citing security agency advice.
