In British English nouns that refer to a group of people can go with either singular or plural nouns with a slight nuance in meaning.  Different countries have different ways of speaking.  There is no "correct".  Have you any idea how quaint/18th century some American English sounds to Brits? The use of the subjunctive in newspapers for example.
