Transport hubs across Belgium and Europe has seen a boost in security measures following last month's terror attacks. There were accusations that not enough was being done by Belgian authorities to prevent the attacks. CCTV's Jack Parrock reports.

Following the Brussels attacks, which hit the city’s international airport and a metro stop, security at all major transport hubs have been stepped up.

At the Brussels midi-station, where Eurostar trains arrive from London and Paris, there are spot bag checks before entering the building.

Over in France, they’re deploying no less than 3000 armed undercover police officers on French trains to prevent future attacks.

The Belgian Prime Minster Charles Michel has said greater intelligence sharing should be the first priority for European nations and many political factions in the EU are pushing for a record of every passenger who flies in or out of the region to track suspected terrorists.
