From The Express:
According to new guidance, smaller churches are at greater risk of being attacked than larger places of worship.
The new advice from an adviser to the Home Office suggests churches should install CCTV and attack alarms to help protect church-goers and clergymen.
The 12-page document recommends churches to put "someone on the door of your church welcoming people into the building during service who can close the front door in an emergency".
The document adds: "Make sure that someone is stood by the door before, during and after the service, whilst the congregation is present.”
