UK Terror threat level downgraded to ‘severe’, though authorities remain on high alert




The UK’s Home Secretary Amber Rudd has confirmed that the country’s terror threat level has been lowered from ‘critical’ to ‘severe’, though all relevant security agencies remain on high alert.

A ‘severe’ level indicates that further attacks are ‘highly likely’.

Two men have now been arrested in the aftermath of a terror attack that occurred at Parsons Green Tube station on Friday, where 30 people were left with injuries after an improvised explosive device partially detonated inside a Tube carriage.
