The Counter Terrorism Police have released a video advising holidaymakers what to do in the event of a terror attack.
The four-minute video was made in association with the Foreign Office and ABTA and depicts an incident at a hotel, describing how to stay safe in such an event.
The video description states that while the chances of being in a terror attack “remain extremely rare”, the new approach encourages everyone to be prepared “should the worst happen”.
The Run, Hide, Tell message was first introduced in 2015 following the terror attacks in Paris in December. It has now been re-issued by the police in answer to the incident at London Borough Market.
The video advises:
If there is a safe route, run
Insist others go with you, but do not let their indecision slow you down
Leave belongings behind
If you cannot run, hide
Be aware of your exits
Find cover from gunfire
Try not to get trapped
Call the police when it is safe (112 for the EU)
