Bacton Gas terminal in North Norfolk brings in one third of the gas we use in this country. It is guarded very ably by a small team of MOD police who work closely with Norfolk Constabulary. The MOD police themselves say they want the support of the local constabulary and this is vital to the work they do. So what does the government do to help ? They withdraw funding from Norfolk Constabulary meaning that they cannot provide 24 hour support for this prime target for terrorism in the UK.
Remember that people now locked up inside top security prisons for terrorist offences have had the name of Bacton Gas terminal on their lists of potential targets. There is a clear risk to Bacton, but this government, obsessed only with inner cities and London cannot spare the small amount of money it needs to protect Bacton properly so Norfolk is policed "on the cheap" by the government whilst other parts of the country are given the very highest levels of security.
