UK says has no plans for travel restrictions or to use military to keep order

LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) - The British government has no plans to bring in blanket travel restrictions for London or to close down the capital’s transport system, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Thursday.

“There is zero prospect of any restriction being placed on travelling in or out of London,” the spokesman said.

He said police would maintain responsibility for maintaining law and order and there were no plans to use the military for this purpose. (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan, writing by Michael Holden/Guy Faulconbridge)
