UK National Threat Level raised

November 16th, 2021

Following the recent incident in Liverpool, the government’s Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has taken the decision to raise the UK National Threat Level from ‘Substantial’, meaning an attack is likely, to ‘Severe’, meaning an attack is highly likely.

The decision has been driven by two terrorist incidents in the past month, reflecting the diverse, complex and volatile nature of the terrorist threat in the UK.

Whilst it is important to stress that this is not in response to any particular or specific threat to the city or the University of Nottingham, staff and students are asked to remain vigilant and be aware of police advice in the unlikely event you are caught up in an incident.

Find out more in the National Police Chiefs’ Council Stay Safe – Public Information Film.

Please also be aware of the university’s current travel guidelines [Workspace login required].
