How did Theresa May’s security team handle her evacuation from Westminster?

Footage of the Prime Minister being escorted from Parliament following the Westminster terror attack has prompted questions about her security team. Sky News police analyst Graham Wettone analysed the footage to see whether Theresa May was moved safely. “The initial attack is coming from the Carriage Gates and the Prime Minister’s car is in the other courtyard . That looks a short distance, but essentially it’s quite some distance to cover.

“The attacker is dealt with very, very quickly . There are a number of armed protection officers literally round the corner.

“Then there’s the courtyard, the safe and secure area where the Prime Minister’s car was located while she was in Parliament in Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs). “You see two protection officers coming out into the courtyard to secure it . They’re in constant communication with the team that has the Prime Minister. “Theresa May is being kept in a secure, safe location within the corridors. “You see her come out with the protection team .

She momentarily moves to the right – she saw one officer move to the right and she wasn’t sure whether to follow him or stay with the protection team behind her. “But you see the officer behind her, who’s very close, has indicated she needs to come to the silver car, with the officer standing next to the door ready for her to get in.

“She’s very relaxed . She even steps back from the door and waits for it to be opened for her to get in . No sign of panic, very calm, she has complete confidence and trust in her team. “The officer has got an MP5 (gun) out, a powerful firearm to deal with any threat . He turns towards the Carriage Gate where the threat has come from.

“She’s in the car, safe and secure . The officers get in the back-up car . Her car moves off, goes towards the exit gates but they haven’t been cleared yet.

“It’s common practice to back off and keep your exits open . The driver can either go the route he’s been asked for, or if he gets different information he can go a different route. “That looks like a very good, very well controlled removal of the Prime Minister from the estate.

“To the untrained eye it may look a bit chaotic . But this isn’t Hollywood, it’s not like you see on the films . They managed it in a controlled, calm manner.”

A Parliamentary security review is now under way, with some MPs raising concerns about weak-points in the estate’s perimeter. Others have questioned unarmed officers being positioned in the first line of defence. A security review was launched in October 2014 after the then-prime minister David Cameron had a run-in with a jogger in Leeds.1 The man – Dean Farley – was briefly arrested but released without charge .

He said he just “brushed into someone while running”. The attack has also drawn comparison with US presidential security, which was put to the test during last year’s campaign when a protester at a rally in Ohio jumped the barricade and tried to rush Donald Trump. Four security men surrounded Mr Trump in seconds, and were praised by the now President for doing “a great job”.

British military bases hit by two security breaches a DAY as number of incidents soars

British military bases suffer a shocking 15 security breaches every week, the Ministry of Defence has admitted. There were 373 physical incidents at Army sites last year, with another 214 at Royal Navy stations, official figures revealed. Security breaches at RAF bases climbed from 19 in 2015 to 87 last year – a surge of 358%.

Authorities recorded almost 1,300 incidents at UK Armed Forces sites in just two years, soaring from 486 in 2015 to 806 in 2016.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said: These figures for security breaches should raise alarm, particularly in the security atmosphere we are currently living through.

The breaches came after cuts to the Ministry of Defence Police budget (file photo)

This is a massive spike these security breaches; these are a major national security risk.

The Government need to come forward with a plan to change this.

But more than that, defence ministers need to assure the public, Forces personnel and their families that they are taking this incredibly seriously. Incidents at Army bases rose from 322 to 373, while breaches at the Defence Equipment and Support trebled from 26 to 78. Breaches at Royal Navy stations rose from 88 to 214.

Worryingly, there were 44 physical incidents – about four a month – at Joint Forces Command in Hertfordshire and Permanent Joint Headquarters at Northwood. There were just 19 in 2015. The Defence Infrastructure Organisation was the only section to notice a fall in the number of breaches over 12 months, dropping from 11 to nine.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron warned: “This is a massive spike”

There was a single breach at head office and corporate services in both 2015 and 2016. The figures were revealed by Defence Minister Mark Lancaster following written Commons questions. Meanwhile, the Tories have slashed the number of officers in all branches of Armed Forces police, and cut the Ministry of Defence Police s budget.

The strength of the Royal Air Force Police fell from 1,479 to 1,160 between April 2010 and December 2016. The Royal Military Police manpower was sliced from 1,701 regulars to 1,529, while Royal Navy Police numbers dropped from 334 to 284. The Ministry of Defence Police s budget was sliced from 182.5million to 136.5million.

The Mirror told last May1 of a surge in trespassing incidents on military bases following the police cuts.

Stats showed there were just eight unauthorised entries to UK military sites in 2009, the last full year of a Labour government.

By 2015, they had rocketed to 45.

The 25 unauthorised entries in 2014 included trespass at Faslane Naval Base in Scotland, home to the Navy s four Vanguard submarines, which patrol the seas armed with Trident2 nuclear missiles.
