Reading this from Sky News...
"US servicemen and women based in Britain have been banned from entering London after the terror bombings, it has emerged.
Areas withing the M25 are out of bounds for members of the US Air Force stationed at two RAF bases in Suffolk.
Some 10,000 personnel were ordered to obey the directive on Thursday in the wake of the attacks.
Matt Tulis, a spokesman at RAF Mildenhall, said: "We are concerned about the safety of our folks and are trying to do what we can to protect them.
This is the best course of action right now"
Half of those banned from travelling to the capital are based at RAF Lakenheath.
Staff Sgt Feff Hamm, at the base, said: "Because the attacks are so recent there is an uncertainty as to the reasons why and how imminent the threat
is right now.
Obviously it is in the interests of the air force to ensure its personel are as vigilant and as safe as possible.
The revelation comes as Londoners have been encouraged to return to work and use public transport as normal"
Thats all they say on the issue at the moment. Hopefully we won't hear the US forces getting a slating over this as theres not much you can do when
you are given directives by the hierarchy.
