The US military has lifted the ban on US militery personnel entering London. The US warned its men not to enter London or the M25 area, but there was
criticism that it sent out the wrong signals at a time when the emphasis was on "business as usual" in London after the attacks.
Personnel, most of them from US Air Force units at RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath, in Suffolk, were told last week not to go within the M25
The Commander of US Forces in Europe, General James L. Jones, based at Mons in Belgium, said in a statement: "[We have] lifted all travel restrictions
for US personnel stationed in the United Kingdom.
"While all personnel are encouraged to be vigilant, we cannot allow ourselves to be intimidated by the acts of terrorists. All US personnel are
encouraged to continue with their normal routine."

Its good that this ban has been lifted.
The US imposing this ban sent out a message to the terrorists that they were winning, so it being lifted is defnitley a good thing!
