Terror Threat Level Raised to SEVERE

Following the incident in Liverpool last week, the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has taken the decision to raise the UK National Threat Level from SUBSTANTIAL, meaning an attack is likely, to SEVERE, meaning an attack is highly likely.Providers should continue to consider risks in the context of their businesses and the types of places that staff are required to visit, keeping in mind that a bomb in a taxi outside the seemingly unlikely setting of a hospital means that none of us should take anything for granted.The decision has been driven by two terrorist incidents in the past month, reflecting the diverse, complex and volatile nature of the terrorist threat in the UK. The UK was last at SEVERE in November 2020 before being lowered to SUBSTANTIAL in February 2021.
