Huge anti-terror barriers are erected outside Birmingham Christmas market amid fears Muslims will celebrate Yuletide

Huge concrete security barriers have been put in place to protect visitors to one of the world’s largest Christmas fairs from terror attacks.

Birmingham city council installed the large concrete bollards throughout the city centre overnight in an effort to keep visitors safe as they enjoy the annual Christmas market, returning to the city on November 16.

It comes as security measures are increased during the festive period to help prevent similar attacks to the one in Berlin, that left 12 people dead, last year.
