Fylde coast soldiers continue to be encouraged to wear their uniforms in public with pride following last week’s terror attack in London.

National reports have suggested Army personnel were advised to wear uniform with caution following the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich.

The soldier was stabbed in the street last Wednesday.

But soldiers on the Fylde coast are still encouraged to wear their uniform by officials from the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

An MoD spokesman said: “The MOD takes the security of its personnel very seriously. They are provided with regular guidance and advice on security matters.

“It is individual’s choice. We encourage personnel to wear uniform outside of work, they should be proud to be serving the Crown.

“The best way we can defeat terrorism is to carry on as normal and that includes wearing uniform.”
