Britain has lowered its national terrorism threat level from ‘severe’ to ‘substantial’.
It is the first time the threat level has been downgraded in five years.
Home secretary Priti Patel said: ‘Despite the change in the threat level, terrorism remains one of the most direct and immediate risks to our national security.’
The ‘substantial’ threat level continues to indicate a high level of threat and an attack might well occur without further warning, she added.
