UK'S TERROR THREAT LEVEL DOWNGRADED BUT ATTACKS STILL 'LIKELY'

It's the lowest level since 2014.

The UK's terrorism threat level has been downgraded to "substantial" from "severe", the Home Secretary has announced.

Priti Patel said the risk of an attack is "likely" rather than "highly likely".

The decision was announced in a written ministerial statement to Parliament.

In it, she said: "Despite the change in the threat level, terrorism remains one of the most direct and immediate risks to our national security.

"Substantial continues to indicate a high level of threat; and an attack might well occur without further warning.
