    Britain’s threat level was raised after an explosion outside a hospital in Liverpool on Sunday which police have declared a terror incident. A taxi passenger took an improvised explosive device into a cab and detonated it outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

    Priti Patel confirmed on Monday a COBRA meeting had taken place, sharing the Joint Terror Analysis Centre (JTAC) is increasing the UK threat level from “substantial to severe”.

    The Government’s definition for a “severe” threat level holds that “an attack is highly likely”.

    The Home Secretary said the decision has been made because this is the “second incident” we have seen in a month.

    The first incident Ms Patel noted was the fatal stabbing of the Conservative MP Sir David Amess on October 15.
