Met Police issue response after ISIS threaten London terror attack within hours

The Metropolitan Police have issued a response after terrorist group ISIS threatened a terror attack on the streets of London within hours.

One of the potential targets listed by ISIS was the Champions League match between Arsenal and Bayern Munich occurring at the London team’s Emirates Stadium.

In a post on X/Twitter, the Metropolitan Police wrote: “We have a robust policing plan in place for tonight’s match and we continue to work closely alongside the club’s security team to ensure that the match passes peacefully.

“If you see something that doesn’t look or feel right, please report it to security or the police.”

In a separate statement, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Ade Adelakan said: “The UK terrorism threat level remains at ‘substantial’ meaning an attack is likely, and we work closely with colleagues from across Counter Terrorism Policing in planning for events here in London, to take into account any relevant information that could help us to keep those attending safe.

“We’re aware of online and media reports in relation to calls to target matches across Europe and here in London.

“However, I want to reassure the public that we have a robust policing plan in place for tonight’s match and we continue to work closely alongside the club’s security team to ensure that the match passes peacefully.

“As ever, we ask the public to remain vigilant, and if they see any that doesn’t look or feel right, then report it to police or security staff.”

The threat comes as 60,000 Arsenal fans will pack the Emirates because of a ban on Bayern Munich fans attending implemented by UEFA.

The governing body said: “UEFA is aware of alleged terrorist threats made towards this week’s UEFA Champions League matches & is closely liaising with the authorities at the respective venues.

“All matches are planned to go ahead as scheduled with appropriate security arrangements in place.”

The hosts of the match Arsenal FC have also said they will work closely with the Met Police to make sure the match happens safely.

The club announced: “We work closely with the Metropolitan Police regarding the safety and security of all supporters and staff at Emirates Stadium for all our matches.

“Our planning for tonight’s fixture is no different and our approach, working together with the Police and UEFA, is proportionate to the current UK threat level.”
