Everyone will have been appalled at the terrible events in Boston.
While the culprits and motivation behind the US terror attacks are still unclear, this will obviously entail a review of security arrangements for both Lady Thatcher's funeral and the London Marathon.
In light of the awful attacks in Boston they will require extra vigilance from everyone involved and it is also to be hoped that everyone recognises the added responsibility of co-operating with the Police and the Authorities at both events.
The number of police officers on duty for the London Marathon has been boosted by 40% to provide reassurance in the wake of the atrocities in Boston according to Scotland Yard.
