The Foreign Office says anyone heading to Tunisia should be aware that further attacks are possible, and they need to be vigilant.

If you are in the area already it advises keeping in touch with your tour operator and following any advice from Tunisian security authorities.

It says a reinforced British Embassy team is on the spot near Sousse providing consular assistance to British nationals in the wake of the massacre.

"Further terrorist attacks in Tunisia, including in tourist resorts, are possible, including by individuals who are unknown to the authorities and whose actions are inspired by terrorist groups via social media. You should be especially vigilant at this time and follow the advice of Tunisian security authorities and your tour operator.
