Now that's what you call a gun guard: Armed to the teeth with firepower at Horse Guards Parade, THIS is the face of policing in London in the age of Islamic terrorism


Police officers were pictured carrying powerful semi-automatic rifles and Glock pistols while patrolling Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall, central London earlier today. It comes as security has been bolstered around tourist hotspots following the shooting of a ceremonial guard outside the Canadian parliament last month and after it emerged Westminster was also on high alert in case of a terrorist attack.
