The Town Council have been briefed by Suffolk Constabulary about the raised level of threat from international terrorism.

There are five main points contained in the Police briefing.

1. The threat level has been raised from Substantial to Severe, meaning that a terrorist attack in the UK is highly likely.

2. The raised threat level relates to current terrorist group activity in Syria and Iraq.

3. Intelligence indicates that terrorist groups are planning an attack in the UK.

The Police have implemented a variety of tactics designed to protect the public. 

4. Throughout the UK there is an increase in high visibility Police activity.

5. The biggest threat is from terrorists returning from Syria and Iraq.

Everyone in the community can assist by being vigilant and reporting any suspicious activity to the Police, or by using the Anti Terrorist Hotline given below. 

The Police recognise that due to the current terror threat and publicity  there is a rise in hate crime and will act against anyone targeting ethnic or religious minorities.
