With new legislation requiring high-capacity venues to devise security measures to protect staff, customers and visitors in the event of a terror attack, Richard Winstanley at BFT Automation offers advice on how Hostile Vehicle Mitigation can play a role in a protective security strategy. Otherwise known as ‘Martyn’s Law’, the Protect Duty Act follows the campaign by Figen Murray, the mother of Martyn Hett, who was among those who tragically lost their lives in the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017. For readers who may not be familiar with the legislation, the new law has yet to come into force but it will require high-capacity venues such as nightclubs, arenas and theatres to devise and provide specific security plans in case of a terror attack.
Spice up the night with Chilli and Tequila!

Cheers to a great autumn season.
