Kent Police officers to patrol key locations with guns

From today - for the first time - armed police will be routinely patrolling in Kent.

Officers trained in firearms and taser will be placed at locations including Canterbury Cathedral, the Port of Dover and Bluewater.

Kent Police say it's an important strategy to protect the public in light of recent terror attacks in Europe but others say it will make people feel less safe - not more. Sarah Saunders reports.
