National video released showing how to stay safe during a firearms or weapons attack Date published: 18th December 2015 9.33am

Attacks in the UK and abroad remind us all of the terrorist threat we face, which in the UK is considered as 'severe', meaning an attack is highly likely.

Police and security agencies are working hard to protect the public but it is also important that communities remain vigilant and aware of how to protect themselves if the need arises.

The short public information film below sets out practical steps that you can take to stay safe in the rare event of a firearms or weapons attack.

Further guidance and information about how to stay safe is available on the Stay Safe page on the NPCC website.
