Terror threat comes after UK sees two attacks in one month
The UK’s terror threat level has been raised following two attacks within a month.
It is now listed as “severe”, which means a “high probability” attack.
The threat level was lowered to “substantial” in February, meaning an attack was “likely”, after being raised to severe last November.
The Joint Center for Terrorism Analysis and MI5 are responsible for establishing international and domestic threat levels, respectively, taking into account available intelligence, terrorist intentions and capabilities, and potential time horizons. capabilities for attacks.
Speaking to broadcasters, Home Secretary Priti Patel said: “The Joint Terrorism Analysis Center, Jtac, is currently raising the UK’s threat level from severe to severe.
“And there’s a reason for that, and that reason is because what we saw yesterday was the second incident in a month.”
