SCRIPT
Barriers have been erected as a security measure against possible vehicle attacks at the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin, as seen in footage shot on Friday. The Breitscheidplatz Christmas market is due to open to visitors on Monday, 25 November.
On December 19, 2016, the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market was attacked by Anis Amri, who drove a stolen truck onto the square on a busy evening, killing 12 people and injuring more than 70.
Amri escaped, but was killed four days later in a shootout with Italian police near Milan. Since the 2016 attack, stringent security measures have been taken each year to protect workers and visitors of the market.
