MI5 offers British intelligence assistance to France

The Director General of MI5 called his French counterpart shortly after yesterday’s Paris attack to offer the assistance of British spy agencies, ITV News has learned.

Andrew Parker also briefed David Cameron and Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, who was visiting Downing Street.

Mr Parker said: "It is too early for us to come to judgments about the precise details or origin of the attack but it is a terrible reminder of the intentions of those who wish us harm.

"As you would expect, we are offering our French colleagues our full support as they respond."

He will outline the terrorist threat that Britain faces in a rare speech the evening.
