For those going abroad on holiday, NaCTSO have released a Stay Safe advisory video, accompanied by a leaflet.

“This film is four minutes long and outlines key actions to take if terrorists strike.

“While there is no specific intelligence that British holidaymakers will be targeted this summer the launch of the film, and supporting information, is part of a general campaign to raise awareness among the public. It highlights the steps people can take to minimise the impact of an attack – including knowing the local emergency services number”.
