With the coronavirus pandemic changing all of our day to day life routines, it is understandable that the threat from terrorism isn’t necessarily front of mind for everyone across the country. But the threat of terrorism sadly has not gone away.
Given national and regional restrictions, compared to previous years, there may be a different look and feel to city centers and public locations over the festive season. However, the recent terror attacks in Europe and the change in the UK’s terrorism threat level to SEVERE – meaning an attack is highly likely – are reminders of how important it is to stay vigilant wherever you are out and about.
As an organisation we work closely with the police to help keep our staff and customers safe and this year we are supporting the Counter Terrorism Policing Winter Vigilance Campaign which encourages the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
