Permanent anti-terror barriers are planned for Manchester city centre, a council report has revealed.

Concrete barriers and bollards could be erected around the city's busiest spots to reduce the risk of terrorists using vehicles to target pedestrians.

Manchester City Council said it was planning to spend 264,000 on the protective measures following advice from counter-terror police.

The money will come from council car parking charges.

The report put before councillors this week recommended the installation of security measures "to protect areas of high footfall from the risk of a vehicle being used as a weapon against pedestrians".
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
