The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) is the UK’s independent centre for analysis and assessment of terrorism. JTAC keeps the UK national threat level under constant review. This is a systematic, comprehensive, and rigorous process, based on the very latest intelligence and analysis of internal and external factors which drive the threat, including international events.

The UK national terrorism threat level remains at SUBSTANTIAL. This means that a terrorist attack is likely.
