The UK’s terror threat level has been raised from substantial to severe, meaning an attack is ‘highly likely’.
It follows Monday’s shooting in Vienna by a suspected ‘Islamist terrorist’ which left four people dead.

She said: ‘The public should continue to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police.’
