Police advice following Manchester attack

May 24th, 2017

Following Monday’s incident in Manchester the national threat level has been raised to critical.

Although the move indicates that a further attack is imminent, Nottinghamshire Police have confirmed that there is no intelligence to suggest a current threat in the region.

They have asked the public remain vigilant and report anything that causes concern.

They stress the need for us all to remain alert but not alarmed.

Across Nottinghamshire, agencies regularly plan for major incidents to test procedures and ensure an effective response in the event of an emergency. There will be an additional policing presence over the next few weeks to reassure the public – not because of any specific threat.

An information film (Run, Hide, Tell) that provides advice on how to stay safe in the unlikely event you are caught up in an incident can be found on the Safety Office pages.

Any member of the University affected by incidents in Manchester can access support via the Services for Students pages.
