Paris Attack

When asked about the terrorist attack in Paris, the PMOS said the Home Secretary had this morning chaired a COBRA meeting to discuss heightened UK protective security arrangements. The UK threat level on the advice of the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) remained at severe, the PMOS added.

The PMOS said border security had been tightened at the UK?s juxtaposed controls and other UK-France transit routes, with an increased visible security presence; adding that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office was working with posts to provide the latest advice and urged people to remain vigilant.

The PMOS also noted that alongside President Hollande and the people of France the Prime Minister had observed one minute?s silence at midday Paris time, and that the flag over Downing Street was flying at half-mast.
