The British government has raised the terror threat level today from SUBSTANTIAL to SEVERE, indicating the increased likelihood of an attack on British soil.

Home Secretary Teresa May announced the raising of the terror threat on television on Friday afternoon. The move is believed to be in response to Iraq and Syria related terror threats, specifically with regard to returning ISIS fighters. Prime Minister David Cameron is due to make a speech soon.
