Twenty-two hostile vehicle mitigation bollards have been installed in Nottingham.

The safety measure follows the installation of permanent metal safety barriers along both sides of Trent Bridge last year, vehicle prevention bollards at the end of Clumber Street a few weeks ago, and two pedestrian bollards on the north side of Trent Bridge last month.

Nigel Wheatley, general manager at the intu Victoria Centre, said: ‘The safety and security of our customers and staff at intu Victoria Centre is always our number one priority.

“We continually review our approach to security and take on board the latest guidance from the police.

“Following talks with Nottingham City Council, hostile vehicle mitigation bollards are being installed outside the centre’s Lower Parliament Street entrance to give pedestrianised areas extra protection from vehicles.

“Please be reassured that their installation is nothing to be concerned by and isn’t a reaction to any specific intelligence or threat.”
