London Police Officers laying out a Talon spiked net outside Parliament to prevent vehicle terror attacks against crowds attending major events. The nets are capable of stopping lorries weighing up to 17 tonnes by puncturing tyres and becoming tangled around the front wheels bringing the vehicle to a stop. The system is designed to ensure that the vehicle skids in a straight line significantly reducing risk to crowds and producing a well controlled stop. The nets can be deployed by two officers in less than a minute© Stefano Cagnoni/reportdigital.co.uk
