Counter Terrorism police, in association with the Foreign Office and ABTA, have launched a new four-minute film outlining what to do if you're caught up in an attack abroad.
The key advice is:
RUN: to a place of safety. This is better than trying to surrender or negotiate.
HIDE: it is better to hide than confront. Barricade yourself in, turn your phone to silent and use only when it is safe to do so.
TELL: Make sure you know the local emergency numbers in the country you’re travelling to. For all EU counties it’s 112.

They say looks can be deceiving, and that is definitely the case when it comes to Angus Palmes. Born in 2004, Angus is 13 years old but at just one meter tall and weighing 2st 2Ibs he is often mistaken for a toddler.
Due to a unique chromosome abnormality Angus stopped growing when he was just three years old. As well as being unable to walk or talk, Angus has severe gastric problems and has endured more than 40 operations in his short life. But despite all this, the pint sized warrior has amazed doctors and his loved ones with his gigantic personality, enormous bravery and truly inspiring positive outlook.
Angus joins us now alongside his mum Tandy, as she tells us why her son is one of the most special people on the planet.
A two-week holiday in Ireland and the Aran Islands took an unexpected twist when American couple Jim and Lee Gum were faced with a 87-metre cliff edge. As Jim prepared to look over the edge, he suddenly felt an uncontrollable and familiar fear that he might lose control and accidentally jump off the edge. So Jim hit the ground and painstakingly crawled his way across the ground to brave a peep at the view below.
Rather than lending a supporting hand, wife Lee filmed his attempt to reach the edge and his son uploaded it to YouTube! The video has been seen by over a million people and Jim now has a fandom he never expected!
With nearly 1.3 million followers, Jim joins us today live from Kansas City.
It was like someone holding a blowtorch to your leg
At 17, Molly Young was looking forward to finishing her exams, leaving school and getting a job. However, her life took a terrifying turn when she was left permanently scarred at the hands of classmate, Emily Bowen.

You’ve signed up to an online dating site, perfected your profile picture and even managed to secure a first date. But imagine your horror when you turn up and realise you’re just one of six women your prospective partner has arranged to meet that night - all at the same bar!
That’s exactly what happened to a group of women in Washington DC, who realised they had each been given a short time slot to impress lothario Justin before his next date arrived. However, his plan backfired when date number one, Lisette Pylant, teamed up with the other women and live tweeted their ordeal.
Five out of the six women join us live from Washington DC.
She won the hearts of the nation with her dazzling dance performance on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent - despite living with the excruciating pain of scoliosis.
Revealing she was due to have surgery that would leave her unable to dance again, 15-year-old Julia Carlile was desperate to win the competition with troupe Mersey Girls so she could pay for a different operation in America - one that wouldn’t wreck her dancing dreams.
Well she didn’t win - but music mogul Simon Cowell stepped in to fund the surgery anyway, and Julia is now recovering in hospital in the States.
In her first TV interview since the life changing operation, Julia spoke to Dr Zoe - and joining us to watch it in the studio are Julia’s fellow Mersey Girls, including her sister Alice.
There’s a rising trend among dog owners, and it’s called furjazzling. An extreme form of dog grooming, furjazzling involves dying dogs multiple colours, painting their nails, dressing them up, and even making them resemble wild animals. This kind of grooming has ruffled some feathers (or rather, some fur), with the Kennel Club arguing it endangers dogs and makes them self-conscious. But enthusiasts claim it is fun and entertaining.
Joining us in today are furjazzling advocates Daniela with pooches Venice and Malibu, and prize-winning Cat Opson and her dog Kobe. We're also joined by journalist Nilufer Atik, who believes furjazzling is cruel. But what do you think?
