The threat level in Great Britain from Northern Ireland-related terrorism has been at “substantial” since September 2010, indicating that an attack is likely, but not imminent. The assessment is based on a range of factors, including the latest intelligence on the capability and intent of terrorist groups.
Threat levels are kept under review and are altered as required on the basis of the available intelligence.
