A day after the 19 December terrorist attack on a Berlin Christmas market, Kingston’s market saw increased security.

Shop owner Ash Green noticed more police on the ground and a newly parked police van blocking the market’s entrance on Clarence Street.
“I think it’s just a safety precaution,” said Green. “[The van] made me a bit anxious, but I wasn’t before.”
A police officer confirmed the van was added in response to the Berlin attack.
