Assess your Risk

Have I got a problem?

The current threat level for International related terrorism in the UK is SEVERE. Threat levels, as categorised by the UK security services, are designed to give a broad indication of the likelihood of a terrorist attack:

 

LOWMeans an attack is unlikely.
MODERATEMeans an attack is possible, but not likely.
SUBSTANTIALMeans an attack is a strong possibility.
SEVEREMeans an attack is highly likely.
CRITICALMeans an attack is expected imminently.

A common theme in a number of the most recent terror attacks, launched both here in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, has been the use of commonly available vehicles as a weapon.

It is clear, therefore, that as a nation we currently face a daily threat of terrorist action on our shores and that we should anticipate the use of vehicles as part of the future threat.

Anyone responsible for safety and/or security of premises or an event location has a clear duty of care and should therefore, in the current climate of heightened security awareness, be considering the extent to which vehicle or vehicle borne terrorist attacks may be a realistic threat to the people or premises that they are seeking to protect.
