Police release video showing how to survive hotel terror attack

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:

  • Run
    If there is a safe route, run
    Insist others go with you, but do not let their indecision slow you down
    Leave belongings behind
  • Hide
    If you cannot run, hide
    Be aware of your exits
    Find cover from gunfire
    Try not to get trapped
  • Tell
    Call the police when it is safe (112 for the EU)
