Canterbury Cathedral To Be Given Armed Guard

From THE BBC:

Police armed with guns are to patrol routinely in Kent, in locations including Canterbury Cathedral, Dover port and the Bluewater shopping centre. The move follows recent terrorist attacks in Europe, but is not in response to specific intelligence.

The armed presence is intended as a deterrent and to allow an immediate response in an emergency. Armed officers will be carrying tasers as well as firearms.
