SGSA reminder to stay alert but not alarmed

Following the terrible incident on Westminster Bridge and at the Palace of Westminster on Wednesday 22 March, our thoughts are with the victims and all the families affected. 

The incident serves as a tragic reminder that crowded places which include shopping centres, visitor attractions, commercial centres and sports grounds, are a target for terrorist activity. 

The UK national threat level remains at SEVERE: An attack is highly likely. There has not been a change of the threat level following these events.

We would like to remind sports grounds and all those involved in keeping people safe to stay alert, but not alarmed and continue to regularly review safety measures and contingency plans.

NaCTSO latest guidance on recognising the terrorist threat can be accessed from www.nactso.gov.uk 

We continue to liaise with the Government, NaCTSO, the UK Police Football Unit, the Football Authorities, sport governing bodies and other parties to ensure the safety of spectators at sports grounds remains a priority.
