UK police and spy agency security measures reviewed after Nice attack, says Rudd


Police and spy agencies in the UK launched a review of security measures in the wake of the Nice attack, the Home Secretary has revealed.

Amber Rudd said the threat from international terrorism in Britain remains at "severe" - meaning an attack is seen as "highly likely".

She said: "On Friday, following the attack in Nice, the police and the security and intelligence agencies took steps to review our own security measures and ensure that we have robust procedures in place, and I am receiving regular updates."

All police forces have reviewed upcoming events taking place in their regions to ensure security measures are "appropriate and proportionate", Ms Rudd told the Commons.
