City to remain closed site

A core area around the site of the City of London bomb explosion is likely to remain closed for up to two months. An 8ft corrugated iron fence is being put up around a 21-acre site covering Bishopsgate, from Liverpool Street in the north to Threadneedle Street in the south. Because of the risk posed by falling debris, everyone entering the area will have to show passes.
