London police say they are reviewing security plans after Berlin, Ankara attacks


London police said on Tuesday they are reviewing their plans for protecting public events over the festive period after Russia’s ambassador was killed in Ankara and a truck ploughed into people at a Christmas market in Berlin.

“The Metropolitan Police has detailed plans for protecting public events over the Christmas and New Year period,” police said in a statement.

“As a matter of routine, as a precaution, we review our plans after attacks overseas, and we are doing so at present following the awful incidents in Berlin and Ankara last night.”
