South Wales Police say they will be reviewing their current security arrangements following the events of the Westminster terror attack.

I extend the sympathies of all of us at South Wales Police to those affected by the grave events in London yesterday.

In the light of this incident in Westminster, South Wales Police is reviewing its current security arrangements and monitoring updates from the Metropolitan Police Service.

I want to reassure the public that there is no specific threat to this region. However, the public are urged to be extra vigilant and to report suspicious incidents.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those affected by yesterday’s terrorist incident.

– Chief Constable Peter Vaughan,
