On The Record

“I wake up every morning with the army, when I leave home every morning to bring my kids to school I say hello to the army guys all the time.

It’s quite different as we’re not used to living with that threat, we thought for years that we were living with perfect security.

“I know the French have increased the security budget by 15% but since what happened a year ago, not far from our home, our police are tired. They are living under such pressure.”
