UK terror threat level remains 'severe' after London attack
Singapore, March 23, 2017

An attack in central London yesterday has left five dead and many injured, after a car drove into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge.



An official statement from Metropolitan Police’s acting deputy commissioner and national lead for counter terrorism, Mark Rowley, read: “The (MI5) UK threat level has been ‘severe’ for some time and this will not change. We have enhanced the scale of policing operation to protect our communities across the country.”


The Metropolitan Police is treating the attack as as a terrorist incident, and have advised people to avoid Parliament Square; Whitehall; Westminster Bridge; Lambeth Bridge; Victoria Street up to the junction with Broadway and the Victoria Embankment up to Embankment tube station.
