POLICE and security presence across Spain has been stepped up in the run up to Christmas Day in the wake of the recent attack in France.
Interior Ministry officials have written to police forces across the country to tell them special reinforcements will be provided following the shooting at a Christmas market in Strasbourg this month.
They are set to remain in place at public places including shopping areas, airports and sports venues until at least January 8.
A spokesperson for Spain’s Security Minister Ana Botella said the decision was taken after meetings to discuss the current terror situation. Spain’s current terror alert level is four, meaning the threat of attack is thought to be high.
