US stands with us (outside the M25)
    #4394491 - 07/12/05 02:19 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Thousands of US military personnel based in the UK have been banned by commanders from travelling to London in the wake of Thursday's bomb attacks.

Personnel, most of them from US Air Force units at RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath, in Suffolk, have been told not to go within the M25 motorway.

Family members who are from the US are also being urged to stay away.

The US air force said the order had been made in the interests of the safety of its troops.

"We are concerned about the safety of our folks and are trying to do what we can to protect them," RAF Mildenhall spokesman Matt Tulis said.

"This is the best course of action right now."

In this difficult hour, the people of Great Britain can know the American people stand with you

He said the US sympathised with Londoners, but added: "While it's important for some to carry on business as usual, the interests in keeping the air force out of harm's way until we have a bit more knowledge about what has happened is greater than the need to send them back into the city."

Service personnel are being allowed to use the M25 to get to Heathrow or Gatwick airports.

Details of the travel ban, enforced on Friday, emerged as US President George W Bush said the US would "not retreat in the face of terrorists" .

This was because of Thursday/Fridays request for employers not to ask employees not to come into London unless absolutely necessary in order to aid the emergency services. The USAF was just being a responsible employer.

This story is being spun out of proportion.

The USAF say the decision was made on the basis of safety to the troops, not helping out the emergency services.
