A PORT security guard has warned he and his colleagues have had no training to cope with an attack.

The guard at Newhaven Port contacted The Argus to blow the whistle over serious security fears.

He said: “In the current climate of terrorist attacks, there is no adequate training for any of the security personnel.

“No one has any training of what to do if a suspicious device is found on the property and even less knowledge of what to do in the event of an attack.

“I work as a security guard and I have been given no protection from attack or any other way to defend myself. Seeing as we only search 25 per cent of all tourists that go through as either car passengers of foot passengers, the likelihood of an explosive device being taken on to the ferry is high and yet nothing is done to counter this, either by the police or the management.”  CLICK HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE
