A bomb threat warning has been received relating to
central London today (16 May). The threat is not specific in
relation to location or time.
The City of London Police, Metropolitan Police
Service and British Transport Police are working closely
together and all officers have been advised to be a highly vigilant
to ensure the safety of London.
Policing operations and contingency planning remain under
constant review and a wide range of overt and covert tactics will
continue to be used in London.
At this time Londoners should continue to go about their
business as usual but we encourage the public to remain vigilant
and report any information about unusual activity or behaviour
which may be terrorist-related to the confidential Anti-Terrorist
Hotline on 0800 789 321.
In the event of an emergency always dial 999.
The threat level from Irish-related terrorism has not increased
and remains at substantial meaning that an attack is a strong
possibility. The threat level was raised in September 2010 from
moderate to substantial.
This is lower than the overall threat to the UK from
international terrorism which remains at severe.
