    Gordon Brown Reveals 'Fortress Britain' Plan
    Freedom; Posted on: 2007-11-14 15:54:57 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]

    He conjured up visions of "Fortress Britain" as he unveiled a succession of security measures at airports, railway stations, sports venues and other public places.

    There is also to be a huge "hearts and minds" drive aimed at diverting young Muslims away from the influence of fanatics.

    The Prime Minister said a review of vulnerable buildings and crowded spaces like shopping centres had led to a rethink of the way they are protected.

    More than 250 busy railway stations, airports and seaports as well as 100 "sensitive" installations like power stations and electricity substations will be given extra security.

    This could include screening luggage at major stations like London King's Cross or Manchester Piccadilly using mobile checking devices that can be moved around the country.

    More buildings will be defended by barriers to stop car bomb attacks, extra blast-proofing, vehicle exclusion zones and metal detectors.

    New security guidance is being sent out to sports venues, pubs, clubs and bars, shopping centres and tourist attractions together with thousands of cinemas and theatres, restaurants and hotels.

    Advice will also be given to hospitals, schools and places of worship on how to keep visitors safe.
