Durham Police have issued a statement on Thursday 23rd March saying their staff have been reminded to 'remain vigilant' following the terror attack on Westminster on Wednesday 22nd March.
They have also said that they have not received any specific information relating to Durham or Darlington that would be of any 'cause for concern' to the public.
Durham Police have replaced their union flag outside their headquarters with the police force crest, which is flying at half mast.
“Officer and staff have been reminded to remain vigilant whilst on patrol and consider security within police premises. If members of the public have any concerns then we would advise them to call 999.
There is no specific information relating to the Durham and Darlington areas that gives specific cause for concern."
The Chief Constable of North Yorkshire Police, Dave Jones has also commented:
“By now many people will have seen news coverage of the attack that took place at Westminster. I would like to reassure the public that there is no intelligence to suggest that there has been any change in the level of risk here in North Yorkshire. Nevertheless, in line with other police forces, we will continue to keep our contingency planning under close review, and make careful assessments of the security around any special events.
“On behalf of North Yorkshire Police I would like express my deepest sympathy to those who have lost loved ones, or who have suffered as a result of this attack. Our thoughts are with those people, and with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police and other emergency services at this difficult time.”
