Armed police presence in Eastbourne should make us feel more secure

Rowland Civil (letters, December 21) shouldn’t be feeling uneasy at the sight of armed police patrolling the new shopping centre.

He should be feeling safer and protected. Did he not visit this year’s airshow? This was patrolled by several armed officers. In these days of terrorist attacks on our streets, unfortunately this is a sight we need to get used to and be thankful for the police’s presence in making us feel more secure.
