(Holmes Pub, Northumberland)--PM deploys soldiers onto streets to protect the citizens--
Operation Temperer - the government plan to put thousands of soldiers on the streets in response to a major terrorist threat, was devised in 2015 and had been a secret until it was accidentally leaked to a newspaper.
Operation Temperer is an established security measure that means citizens can expect to see soldiers helping law enforcement at sensitive security points like rail stations, Parliament, and other destinations or events with big crowds. The operation, first unveiled in 2015, is a practised procedure, and allows UK soldiers to replace armed police in many areas so that those police can patrols in key areas.
Armed troops are to be sent to guard key locations such as Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, the Palace of Westminster and embassies, Scotland Yard has said.
Soldiers could be deployed to support police at major events such as the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday or the Champions League final in Cardiff on June 3.
Operation Temperer will not be in effect in Northern Ireland - instead there will be an increase in the armed police patrols.
