Security increased in Stratford following Manchester bombing

Security has been stepped up in Stratford this week following the Manchester Arena attack on Monday.

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has increased bag searches and security patrols following the incident, which claimed 22 lives.

Becky Cund, a director at the trust, told the Stratford Observer: “We have stringent security measures and procedures in place, and these are continuously reviewed.

“Since the attacks in London and Manchester we have increased our security patrol and bag searches are now in place across all five of the Shakespeare family homes.

“In the last six months we’ve replaced and significantly upgraded our security cameras. Our staff are trained in what to look out for and know how to report it if they spot anything suspicious. We ask all staff and visitors to remain vigilant but not alarmed,” she added.

In the town centre, the bollards in Henley Street will stay raised 24 hours a day over the bank holiday weekend.
