Threat Level

by msecadm4921

The Government reports that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has changed the UK threat level from international terrorism from SEVERE to SUBSTANTIAL.

The current threat level means that the threat of a terrorist attack remains a strong possibility and may occur without warning.

The Home Secretary Ala Johnson said: "Today, 20 July, the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) changed the UK threat level from international terrorism from severe to substantial. This means that a terrorist attack is a strong possibility.

‘The change in the threat level to substantial does not mean the overall threat has gone away – there remains a real and serious threat against the United Kingdom and I would ask that the public remain vigilant.

‘The decision to change the threat Level is taken by JTAC independently of Ministers and is based on the very latest intelligence, considering factors such as capability, intent and timescale. Substantial continues to indicate a high level of threat; and that an attack might well occur without further warning. The threat level is kept under constant review.’

The Home Office adds that this does not mean that the threat has gone away and we must not be complacent. The public should continue to be vigilant and report anything suspicious. But you should not let the fear of terrorism stop you from going about your day-to-day life as normal.
