London, July 18 (ANI): Shopping centres across Britain have been placed on alert for a terrorist attack that would probably result in the deaths of dozens of innocent people.
According to The Telegraph, the National Counter Terrorism Security Office now holds training days for shopping centres and other vulnerable targets up and down the country, warning: Terrorist attacks in the UK are a real and serious danger."
"Crowded places, including shopping centres, are likely to feature in the attack plans of terrorist organisations in the future as they are usually locations with limited protective security measures and therefore afford the potential for mass fatalities and casualties," the office adds.
MI5 have also launched Operation Lightening to record, research and investigate suspicious activity and it is particularly focused on the "hostile reconnaissance" of targets. (ANI)
