“Routine arming with Tasers would be a mistake and counter to the traditions of British policing.

“Strong community relationships, not weapons, are the key to fighting terrorism - just as they are to fighting crime", Mr Salmon argued.

Citing the killing of Fusilier Lee Rigby near Woolwich Barracks in 2013 as an example of how lone wolf-style attacks could be carried out without guns, Steve White, Head of the Police Confederation, said all frontline police officers should have the option of arming themselves with Tasers in future to help them deal with the UK's heightened security threats.
