Once again I find myself in the position of updating you following the terrible loss of life over the weekend in London.
There is no intelligence of a threat to Birmingham at this time and whilst the national security threat remains Severe we will not be escalating our policing to the levels seen last week. We will deploy our staff to provide reassurance at key locations around the City Centre and you will see more visibility than usual in the coming days.
We are constantly reviewing our response to pre-planned activities in the City Centre such as the Cricket Fan Zone in Victoria Square and are preparing for a vigil in the Cathedral grounds this evening.
I would encourage you to continuously review your own security plans if there is anything that you need advice on, please contact me.
I will keep you informed on any developments.
