Herts Police have upped patrols in the county following the deadly attacks in Brussels.

A Hertfordshire Police spokeswoman said: “While there is no specific intelligence to suggest a similar attack is planned in this country, we have increased patrols, to provide reassurance to the public.

“The threat to the UK from international terrorism remains at severe, as it has been since August 2014, meaning an attack is highly likely.

“People should be alert but not alarmed and report any suspicious activity to the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321. In an emergency always call 999.”
