UK TERROR THREAT: Armed police to SWOOP on top shopping centre amid fears of ISIS attack

ANTI-terror police are to swoop on a shopping centre in a training exercise to test their response to a Paris-style attack.


Armed with machine guns, officers will drill their training techniques during the exercise at the Trafford Centre complex in Manchester.

Around 800 people will be involved in the role-play exercise, with police wanting to make the “attack” as realistic as possible.

Senior officers, who will direct different scenarios such as possible hostage taking, mass casualties or suicide bombers.

Police from from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit stress there is no specific threat to the shopping centre.

But the current UK terror threat level is described as severe – meaning an attack is highly likely.

The sick Islamic State group, which was behind the Paris and Brussels attacks, has repeatedly warned it is primed to attack Britain.
