National threat level reduced to severe

Issued on 17/9/17 at 4:30 p.m.

The national threat level has this evening (Sunday 17 September) been reduced from critical to severe, which means an attack is highly likely.

The public should continue to be vigilant and the increased patrols that had been put in place across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland will continue over the weekend to provide further reassurance. More »

Assistant Chief Constable Julia Debenham said: "We have reviewed our current operational plans in light of the threat level being reduced and the greater numbers of armed and unarmed police officers that you will have seen on patrol will continue for the weekend.

"While the national threat level has been reduced, it is important that we all continue to be vigilant and we want to hear from you if you see anything suspicious, be it a vehicle, package or person. You should rely on your instincts and call us if you are in any doubt."

People can report any suspicious activity by calling the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline - 0800 789 321. It is staffed around the clock by specialist counter-terrorism police officers and staff.

A text phone service is also available for people with speech or hearing difficulties on 0800 032 45 39 (text messages from mobiles are not accepted). » Less
