German security forces are on high alert as the country prepares to see in the New Year, days after 12 people were killed in a truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market.

At Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate, a traditional gathering point to ring in the New Year, concrete blocks will protect revellers from potential vehicle attacks.

Similar barriers, and a beefed up police presence, will be in place in Cologne, where hundreds of cases of sexual assault were reported during New Year’s Eve celebrations last year.
