In the Westminster district of London police put a fence around the office of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson because of a suspicious object. This was announced by the police of the United Kingdom capital on its Twitter page on September 8.
The fences were set up near the house 10 on Downing Street. Emergency services officers are on duty at the site.
“A cordon has been set up while an assessment is conducted to determine if the object is suspicious,” the police clarified.
In December 2019, a suspicious object was found at a Christmas market in Berlin at Breitscheidplatz, where a terrorist attack took place in 2016. Police then evacuated the market and two people were detained.
They turned out to be Syrian nationals known for their “Islamist beliefs” and with previous experience with explosives.
