Martin Brunt, a crime correspondent for Sky News, visited an English church to see if they had added any additional security measures in the wake of a terrorist attack at a French church Tuesday.
“The morning service began about 20 minutes ago and there are no obvious signs of any security,” he said. “In fact, this sign at the church door says everybody is welcome.”
Brunt can be seen entering and exiting the church.
“There are about a dozen worshippers in there and one priest,” he said. “If I was a terrorist, I could have killed them all.”
I was saying Mass in my Church. No security anywhere. If I were a terrorist. #ICouldHaveKilledThemAll— Andrew Foreshew-Cain (@churchnw6) July 29, 2016
Loads of squirrels in my backyard this evening. Calmly eating nuts. If I was a terrier #ICouldHaveKilledThemAll— Law Turley (@treacle_a) July 28, 2016
I went for a walk today. No signs of any security. I saw about half a dozen dog walkers. If I was a terrorist #ICouldHaveKilledThemAll.— Jason Kalapothakis (@UnmarredGlory) July 29, 2016
