Fears over 'small number of Britons' after Paris terror attacks


Concerns remain about a "small number" of Britons who may have been caught up in the Paris attacks, Downing Street said after David Cameron warned about the possibility of British casualties.

Officials have confirmed the safety of many British citizens in Paris, but a team from the Metropolitan Police and extra consular staff have been sent to work with the French authorities to establish the fate of other UK nationals in the French capital.

The Prime Minister warned that the UK should "be prepared for a number of British casualties" as he told the French people: "Your fight is our fight."

Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attacks which killed at least 127 people and wounded 300 more, around 80 of them critically.
