There will be an increased police presence at the London Marathon this weekend in the wake of bombings at the Boston event, the Home Secretary told MPs today.
Theresa May said adjustments to security arrangements had been made to this weekend's race after the fatal explosions that tore through spectators watching the race in the US on Monday.
Giving evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee, Mrs May said, "They've made some adjustments to policing. They've put in some increased policing for the marathon".
"The London Marathon is a regular event, the organisers have a good record in terms of venue security, such as you can for an event that covers 26 miles", she said, adding, "We're very conscious of safety and security needs".
