Suffolk Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Kearton wants new legislation to criminalise the carrying of corrosive substances, similar to laws for carrying knives. Under the proposed legislation, suspects would have to prove they were carrying liquids, ranging from sulphuric acid to household bleach, for legitimate reasons.

    A Christmas market in France has been cancelled because it can’t afford the security costs amid Europe’s ever-growing terror threat. It comes after police in Germany found a suspicious package near a similar Christmas market in Potsdam. This event in Lyon, at Croix-Rousse, would have cost €20,000 in security, so organisers have called it off.

    s this our new normal? During my FBI career as a Special Agent and ultimately Assistant Director, the FBI, police, and domestic security agencies viewed terrorist incidents through a black and white, binary lens. If we “allowed” an attack to happen, we had failed. If we prevented an attack, we had succeeded. Yet, the increase in lone wolf, soft-target attacks — particularly attacks where trucks and cars are driven into large, vulnerable crowds — can actually be viewed as a symptom of our success. The Halloween terror attack that occurred in New York City raises an important question: Do we...
