Remembrance security 'intensified', says armed forces chief

The head of the UK's armed forces has urged people not to let fears of terrorism disrupt their way of life.

Speaking on Remembrance Sunday, Gen Sir Nicholas Houghton said "the proximity of the sense of threat for this weekend" had "intensified" security levels.

But he added: "We've just got to keep continuing our normal life."

"The last thing that we at all would want to do is succumb to any sense that there is a terrorist threat there that is at all going to stop the British way of life."
