Police are asking the public to be alert, but not alarmed, and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity.

Police have confirmed that there will be an increased visible police presence across the county following the terror attack in London.

The threat to the UK from international terrorism remains at “severe”, meaning an attack is highly likely.

Chief Constable Alec Wood said: “There will be a heightened visible policing presence across key locations in the county today and I would like to reassure the public that we remain dedicated to keeping people safe.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite said: “I will be talking to the Chief Constable today to be assured that the constabulary will continue with the additional patrolling. I will ensure that all resources necessary are made available to the constabulary at this difficult time.

“As far as I am aware, there continues to be no threat in Cambridgeshire that we are aware of, but we must all remain vigilant and ensure that if there is something that you see or hear that you are not sure about, that this is reported to the police immediately.

“While there remains no specific threat to Cambridgeshire and Peterborough we will continue to monitor the situation and ensure our streets are kept safe.

Report suspicious behaviour or activity to police, in confidence, on 0800 789 321 or gov.uk/ACT or in an emergency the public should always call 999.
