Floral tributes and tea lights for the Manchester Terrorist Attack were being placed at the base of the Sir Walter Scott Monument in George Square, Glasgow today.  I happened to be in the city centre at noon en route to a concert in the Merchants Hall adjacent to George Square.
 There was an armed police presence in Queen Street Station as I came through.  The chap at the exit gate said that they are going to be around "for the next few days at least".

Glasgwegians know about terrorist attacks (Glasgow Airport 2007) so it is a topic that is on everyone's mind. Also IRA bomb threats were a feature of the 70s and 80s as well.
