Britain prepares for its nightmare scenario: Police stage mock Tunisia-style 'marauding gun attack' on streets of London in biggest ever counter-terrorism exercise in the UK 
Two-day 'live play' exercise at Aldwych near Covent Garden includes 999 services and intelligence agencies
Armed police, the military, SAS and spies stage extraordinary show of force to test reaction to a terror attack
Actors posing as members of the public seen with fake severed limbs and emerging from a hostage situation
Exercise, which recreates a terrorist incident at a tube station, comes amid fears of a 'lone wolf' attack in the UK
It follows similar 'marauding' gun attacks in Mumbai, Sydney, Paris and the Tunisia shooting on Friday


Armed police, the military, SAS and spies have staged a mock 'marauding terrorist attack' on the streets of London today to test how emergency services deal with a deadly atrocity in the wake of the ISIS killings in Tunisia.
In the biggest exercise of its kind ever staged, Operation Strong Tower is a 'noisy and visible' practice run for more than 1,000 Met police, armed forces, transport workers and Whitehall officials.
In extraordinary scenes, volunteers posing as members of the public were pictured with bloody wounds and fake severed limbs being lifted on stretchers by the emergency services.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Maxine de Brunner said the Met has never before put on an exercise of this magnitude and it was designed to be 'very realistic'. 
The dramatic public display of how the UK's security services would respond to an extremist's deadly assault came as efforts continue to identify British holidaymakers killed by an ISIS gunman on Friday.
