British Transport Police urge Londoners to stay vigilant
25th November 2014

The head of the British Transport police has warned Londoners to stay alert whilst using public transport to help prevent terror attacks. The message hasn’t been prompted by a specific threat.

It comes as part of counter-terrorism awareness week, which aims to make the UK safer, more resilient and more responsive to terrorism.

During the week, counter-terrorism officers will brief over 6,000 people at eighty venues to raise awareness of terrorist threats.

The drive comes three months after the terror threat level in the UK was raised from “substantial” to “severe”. This means an attack is officially “highly likely.”

Authorities have so far stopped five suspected terrorist plots in the past year.
