Following the attack in Westminster, the national threat level remains at Severe –There remains no intelligence to hint at an attack in the West Country. We urge people to remain vigilant and to tell the police of any suspicious activity or concerns about individuals who could be vulnerable to radicalisation or extremism. Extremists often target vulnerable or young people to persuade them to carry out violent acts. Families and communities should be alert for changes in behaviour, new opinions that advocate violence, a fascination with extreme groups or weapons and if concerned please tell someone in authority.
