Albert Square - additional security features

In light of recent terrorist incidents involving the use of vehicles, an security barrier has been erected around the perimeter of Albert Square to prevent hostile vehicles being driven into the Square. 

The hackney carriage rank on Albert Square will remain open and accessible, however the short section around the isolated traffic island at the entrance to the rank has been closed. 

The exact location and appearance of the barrier may change over time as feedback from users of the area is considered.
