New terror warning: Britain faces ‘very, very serious threat’ of Paris-style ISIS attack

BRITAIN faces a “very, very serious threat” of an imminent Paris-style attack and security services are working “around the clock” to thwart any plots on UK soil, Europe’s top police officer has warned.


Rob Wainwright, director of Europol – the EU’s law enforcement agency – said many of the estimated 5,000 European jihadis who had fled to Syria and Iraq to join Islamic State had returned.

And Britain appears to be at the centre of the continent’s escalating security crisis, with around 40 per cent of Europol’s casework involving a “British element”.

Mr Wainwright said: “I think it is likely that we will have another attack.

“We are working of course around the clock to prevent that from happening but this is a very, very serious threat.”

Europe’s current threat level is at its highest for 10 years in the wake of attacks in the French capital last November and intelligence that suggests an attack is highly likely.

The former MI5 officer also used the warning to highlight apparent dangers of Britain leaving the EU.

The British terror chief said it would be “difficult for the UK to replace what it currently relies on in the EU with arrangements that would be as effective and as cost efficient as well”.
