Hilary Benn

The security arrangements in place include new 2.4 metre high fencing and 24 hour security guarding.

Following an incident of illegal trespass on 10 May 2002, immediate action was taken to install additional security measures on the Brentwood site. The additional measures, which were installed in consultation with Brentwood borough council and the Essex police, included trenches, earth mounding and other obstructions to entry.
