London, United Kingdom: Emergency services training for threat of terrorist attack.
Britain's emergency services are being trained to tackle a marauding terrorist gun attack in the aftermath of the recent attacks in Toulouse and Norway, the security minister, James Brokenshire, is to disclose on Thursday.
In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute in London, the security minister says that the home secretary has ordered a new programme of work to improve the way the emergency services respond to the changing tactics of terrorists.
He says that the experiences in Toulouse, where three children and a rabbi were murdered in an shooting attack on a Jewish school in March, and the Oslo bombings and Utøya shootings in which 77 people died last year demonstrated the impact that a lone individual can have if sufficiently motivated.
"The overall aim is to ensure that the blue light services are trained and exercised to work together as effectively as possible in response to fast-moving terrorist scenarios, so that as many lives as possible can be saved," he says.
"The programme will build upon the work done to date on the joint emergency response to specific risks, including a marauding terrorist firearms attack and incidents involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear substances. Staying ahead of the threat means ensuring our emergency response is capable of dealing with the threat in whatever form it takes," says Brokenshire.
The Home Office minister is also to reflect security service concerns about northern Mali joining the list of places that lack any effective government such as Somalia, Afghanistan and Yemen and where terrorism now flourishes.
He said that since a coup earlier this year, some Tuareg groups have forged closer alliances with al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, and a "collective failure to act" over northern Mali "might well become manifest in attacks closer to home," warns Brokenshire.
The security minister confirms that the Home Office will implement a "no-fly list" under which airlines will be denied authority to carry foreign nationals who pose a terrorist threat on flights to Britain.
He is also to defend the government's plans to track email and mobile phone use in the communications data bill arguing that terrorists are using internet messaging, phone services and even video games to communicate. The security minister says that the delivery of a safe and secure Olympic Games does not mean that the threat from al-Qaida has disappeared.
"Those who want to do us serious harm are waiting for the moment we take our eye off the ball. The number of terrorism arrests rose from 126 in 2010/11 to 206 in 2011/12. Two hundred and eighty three persons have been convicted of a terrorism-related offence since 11 September 2000. The threat remains very real," says Brokenshire.
