LONDON: Britain’s official threat level for international terrorism was lowered Wednesday to “substantial,” meaning an attack is likely.
It previously stood at “severe,” signaling that UK intelligence officials considered an attack highly likely.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said that “any reduction in the threat level is positive but it must never make us complacent.”
She said the threat from terrorism in the UK was “complex, volatile, and unpredictable.”
