Answer for London Bridge Attack

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS has undertaken protective security reviews at key iconic sites, crowded places and major events across London, including Lambeth and Southwark. This has resulted in additional security measures, such as hostile vehicle mitigation barriers now in place across all eight central London bridges. The Counter Terrorism Command continues to provide support to all 32 boroughs in response to a terrorist threat or incident.

My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime is also working with leads across London to ensure that hostile vehicle mitigation is reviewed going forward.
