British police have re-launched a four minute video which advises tourists how to react if there is a terror attack. The safety video urges anyone caught up in a terror attack to ‘run, hide, and tell’.

Three years ago 30 British holidaymakers were killed in a massacre carried out by a gunman on a beach in the Tunisian resort of Sousse. And last August a seven-year-old British boy was among 13 people killed after a terrorist rammed a van into tourists on Las Ramblas in Barcelona.

Take sensible precautions

“We want people to think of this in the same way they do the safety film airlines show before take-off,” said Chief Superintendent Nick Aldworth of the Metropolitan Police.

“They don’t expect anything bad to happen but it is a sensible safety precaution to show people what to do.”

He added that the chances of being caught up in a terror attack abroad are “low”.
