General Announcements:

Dear Customer,

Please note that the Port of Liverpool will observe a one minute silence today at 11:00 in respect for the victims of the incident in Manchester. Additionally, please find below statement issued by the Port of Liverpool Police.

NATIONAL TERRORIST THREAT LEVEL – CRITICAL

The above advice was issued on the 23rd as a result of the tragic incident in Manchester on Monday night our sympathies are with the victims of the families who have been tragically killed and injured.

At this moment there is no specific intelligence of a threat against maritime security and the ISPS security level remains at level 1, however there will be some impact on our lives through an increased security presence focused on public spaces.

Terrorists want to create discord, distrust and to create fear. The Police stand together with all communities in the UK and we will take action against any criminal behaviour which seeks to undermine society, especially where crimes are motivated by hate.

Communities defeat terrorism, which is why we must maintain the strong relationship between the public and the Police. We depend on information from the public, who can be our eyes and ears in our efforts to keep us all safe.

Acts of terrorism and hate crimes are committed by a small minority of people and are not representative of the public. This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to intimidate or cause fear.

On Tuesday 23rd May 2017, following an assessment by Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), the Prime Minister announced that the UK threat level from international terrorism is now CRITICAL, meaning an attack is expected imminently. The level of threat is complex and ranges from lone actors intent on carrying out crude attacks to sophisticated networks pursuing ambitious and coordinated plots. Together with our partners we are doing everything we can across the country to prevent attacks and to protect the public from harm.

In response to this heightened threat members of the public will see an increased Policing and security presence at key sites, such as train stations and other crowded places to help protect our communities.

As a precautionary measure you will see an increased number of officers on duty to provide a highly visible, reassurance presence across the country.

The Police urge the public to remain alert but not alarmed – the Police service and our partners are doing everything we can to help protect the security of our communities, public institutions, critical national infrastructure and businesses and places of interest. Security measures and activities are under constant review to reflect where the threats exist.

The latest guidance on recognising the terrorist threat and remaining vigilant can be accessed via http://www.nactso.gov.uk/

Be vigilant. If you suspect it, report it. Nobody is better placed to detect something that is out of place in their communities than the people living in them. We would encourage you, if you do see any suspicious activity, to call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency the public should always call 999. For further information on reporting suspicious behaviour visit https://act.campaign.gov.uk/

If you get caught up in the rare event of a weapons attack we urge you to follow the Run, Hide, Tell advice.

Regards

 

Dave Galt – Chief Officer
