Military had joined police in London to help keep key points of the Capital more secure.

Intelligence Services raised the terror threat level to Critical when the Manchester Arena was attacked by a suicide bomber. It meant attacks were imminent.

About 3,800 military were deployed in UK as the nation went on alert.  On the first day armed soldiers were at Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, Buckingham Palace.

22 people were killed in the bomb attack and 64 injured.

There was a Police hunt for a network that was operating behind the bomber Salman Abedi.  His father, Ramadan and younger brother Hashem were detained by militia in Libya.

In the meantime, the public approve. They didn’t seem concerned to see the forces on the streets with weapons ready for any action necessary.  Safety and security was important under the circumstances.

We spoke to some in London who told us they’re not against seeing armed troops on the streets.
