London, United Kingdom - Polarsteps

London Bridge (not to be confused with the tower bridge) was the target of a terrorist attack on the 3rd of June 2017. Three Islamist terrorists used a rented van to ram pedestrians walking across the bridge, killing three. The attackers then drove their vehicle to nearby Borough Market, where they stabbed multiple people, five of whom died. Armed police arrived on scene and shot the three suspects dead. In addition to the eight innocent people killed in the attack, 48 were injured. The result of this are the black anchor like barriers that are placed on the bridge to prevent vehicles to drive on the pedestrian area. I did not feel unsafe whatsoever but it was sad to see that they had to place barriers to protect the pedestrians from future terrorist attacks.
