Police Scotland reassure’s nation amid heightened terror threat level

A senior police officers has said there is “nothing to suggest there is any specific threat to Scotland” as the UK Government heightens the terror threat level.

The threat level was increased to severe on Monday, which means an attack is highly likely, after a man blew himself up outside a Liverpool hospital on Remembrance Sunday.

Police Scotland’s Assistant Chief Constable Mark Williams moved to reassure people in the country that there was “nothing to suggest there is any specific threat to Scotland”.

He said the decision by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, was made following two recent incidents declared as terrorism, the killing of Sir David Amess and the incident in Liverpool on Sunday.

“While the terrorist threat in the UK is diverse, volatile and complex, I would stress at this time there is nothing to suggest there is any specific threat to Scotland,” he said.

“I do want to take this opportunity to remind the public not to be alarmed, but to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to Police Scotland.”
