Manchester attack: Met Police step up patrols as security increased at London venues after terror attack
A suicide bomber set off a device near the foyer of the Manchester Arena as revellers left an Ariana Grande concert. The O2 has also upped security at its upcoming concerts, where the US star had been due to perform . Her spokesperson has said it is “highly unlikely” she will play the gigs. Extra armed officers will also be in place at the Aviva Premiership rugby final at Twickenham and the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday.

In a statement, Ms Dick praised officers in Manchester for their bravery and pledged to up security. She said: This is an utterly appalling attack . My thoughts are with the people of Manchester as they try to come to terms with the horrific events that took place in their city last night.
Here in the capital we put extra police officers on duty as Londoners started their journeys into work . This will continue for as long as it is needed, and the mix of armed and unarmed officers are there to reassure.
Looking ahead to the weekend – a normal busy and vibrant weekend in our city – we are working with all those planning events to make sure we are doing all we can.

“We are used to delivering policing operations that seek to mitigate against the severe threat we face from terrorists.”
Speaking outside Downing Street, Prime Minister Theresa May said it was beyond doubt that the city was the victim of a callous terrorist attack . In November 2015, terrorist gunmen killed 89 people when they attacked the Bataclan theatre in Paris, leading to music venues across the capital to increase security. The O2 arena warned visitors to expect enhanced security checks at upcoming gigs and promised to update whether Ariana Grande s two gigs will take place.
A spokesman said: We are shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible tragedy in Manchester . Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected and their families.
Anyone visiting The O2 should allow extra time for enhanced security checks. A spokesman Live Nation, which runs London s three O2 academies, said: We are deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy and our hearts and thoughts are with those impacted by this devastating incident.
Marcus Davey, chief executive at Camden’s Roundhouse said: ” The safety of audiences is our utmost priority and we re in constant communication with local police and with our security contractors but cannot share details of our processes publicly.
“Our events and gigs are still going ahead as planned but we would advise people not to bring bags unless necessary and to allow plenty of time for security checks. In June, artists from across the world will descend on Hyde Park for the British Summer Time festival. A spokeswoman said: “The safety of our customers is of the utmost importance .
We work closely with the Metropolitan Police and all relevant authorities to ensure we have an appropriate security plan in place to protect public safety.
“Our thoughts are with those affected by the tragic incident in Manchester.”
