Murray praises Ghent security arrangements

Updated: 

Andy Murray says the Great Britain team feel secure in Ghent amid concerns over a potential terrorist attack in Belgium.

Murray and the rest of the GB team arrived in the city on Monday ahead of the Davis Cup final against their hosts, which is due to get under way on Friday.

In the nation's capital Brussels, the terror alert was raised to the highest level after the government warned of a "serious and imminent" threat of an attack.

Addressing a media conference on Tuesday, Murray praised security staff for putting arrangements in place to allow the team to feel safe.

"I've been saying the last few days, a lot of the ties you think everything's fine and the security you don't necessarily need it," he said.

"But in situations like this it's great that we have such capable people that are able to give us the best advice and everyone, I think, is very comfortable in the team.

"It was obviously a bit concerning a few days ago but I think once we got here, and got into the hotel, came to the venue and saw what it was like here, I think that made everyone a lot more comfortable."
