Airport threat level raised
January 10th, 2011 by elisa

UK airport and London Railway terminals have had their threat levels from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’, however, security officials insist it is a precautionary measure as they have no intelligence of an imminent attack at a major transport hub.

Airports and major London railway stations have been operating under a ‘substantial’ threat of terrorist attacks since January 2010, but the threat level across the UK overall has been at the second-highest, ‘severe’, for the past year.

These threat levels are set by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, part of MI5. Only the overall threat to the UK is made public but specific areas of the national infrastructure are continually changed and kept secret. According to the BBC however, the threat at UK airports has been moved up a level and there will be more of a police precence from now on.
