Increased numbers of heavily armed police have been deployed at one of Britain”s biggest transport hubs in the wake of the devastating terror attack in Paris.

British Transport Police said it had increased the number of armed patrols at London”s St Pancras station to provide reassurance to the public.

The central London station is a key transport link to Paris through the Eurostar terminal.

Pictures from the station today show armed police officers patrolling through the station – just one day after three terrorists murdered 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: "Since 2012, we have deployed armed officers within London.

"The safety of rail passengers and staff is of paramount importance to us, and we want to provide a reassuring, visible armed presence to deter terrorism on the rail network.

"In light of the events in Paris, we have increased patrols at St Pancras, in order to maintain and provide enhanced visibility and reassurance to the public. We keep our security arrangements under constant review."

A huge manhunt is currently ongoing across France for two brothers thought to be behind the attack. A third suspect surrendered himself to police last night.

The UK has strengthened security at the border with France to ensure the shooting suspects do not enter the country.

Home Secretary Theresa May announced there will be extra searches and scanning of cars and lorries at ports and train terminals in the wake of yesterday”s atrocity in Paris in which 12 people were murdered.

The terrorist threat level in the UK will remain at severe, which means an attack is highly likely.

Separately, the British secret service is offering its French counterparts its full support.

Andrew Parker, director general of MI5, said: “It is too early for us to come to judgments about the precise details or origin of the attack but it is a terrible reminder of the intentions of those who wish us harm.

"As you would expect, we are offering our French colleagues our full support as they respond.”
