Burnley install anti-terrorism security barriers designed to thwart …

Burnley have become the first football club in the country to install security barriers to protect fans from potential terrorist attacks. The temporary barriers, which were first used outside Turf Moor for Saturday’s Premier League game with Swansea, prevent drivers from ramming vehicles into supporters making their way to the ground. There have been numerous incidents where vehicles have been used for fatal attacks during the past few years, including in London, Nice and Barcelona.

According to the Burnley Express1 , the British-designed barriers, installed by events management company StadiumTM on behalf of the football club, allow pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users to pass through and can be dropped in under 30 seconds to enable access for the emergency services.

David McAtamney, managing director of StadiumTM, said: Keeping crowds and public spaces safe during an event is paramount, and following shocking vehicle attacks across the globe including here in the UK we wanted to be at the forefront of bringing effective barrier systems to public events.

HVM barriers are the most recent addition to the services we offer and we were pleased to work with Burnley Football Club to install these at their home game against Swansea City.

The safety of fans is the club s highest priority and they were keen to become the first football team to use this innovative security method . The barriers are a temporary security measure which not only acts as a deterrent, but can also arrest and stop vehicles . We were able to quickly install and remove the barriers, and crowds entering and exiting Turf Moor were able to pass through them easily.

Cost of MPs security rises by 2m following murder of Yorkshire’s Jo Cox

The amount of money spent protecting MPs has increased by more than 2 million since the murder of Jo Cox, figures have shown. Information published by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) shows that 170,576.24 was spent on security assistance in 2015/16. This sum increased 15-fold to 2,550,954.22 in 2016/17, IPSA said. Ruth Evans, chair of the authority, said: “Following the tragic events of June 2016, there was a big increase in the total expenditure on security, rising to 2.5 million during this year.

“It is important that we take the security of MPs, and that of their families and their staff, very seriously.” IPSA said a standard package of security measures is available to all MPs that has been recommended by security advisers and the police. Enhanced measures can be offered to MPs upon recommendation by the police, the authority added. Ms Cox was murdered by right-wing extremist Thomas Mair as she arrived to host a surgery in her Batley and Spen constituency last June.

Earlier this year, a coat of arms was unveiled in Parliament to honour the Labour MP.

Inspired by her maiden speech, the plaque bears the motto “More in Common”, with elements to show off her love of rivers and mountains and her support for women, as well as four red roses to represent each of her family members, two red for Labour and two white for Yorkshire.
