UK police to close some roads near Buckingham Palace after Berlin attack
LONDON - British police said they would temporarily close roads around Queen Elizabeth's London residence Buckingham Palace during a military ceremony on Wednesday, bringing forward plans to do so in response to a truck attack in Berlin.

London's Metropolitan Police said that they would trial a two-hour road closure plan for three months to protect the large crowds that gather on days when the Changing of the Guard ceremony is held outside Buckingham Palace.

The road closures started earlier than had been planned by security chiefs due to the attack in Berlin on Monday, when a truck ploughed into crowds at a Christmas market, killing 12 people and injuring 48.
