The Police's Anti-Terror Advice is Basically Hide-And-Seek For Petrified Adults

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

With authorities all but certain that a Paris-style attack will take place in the UK in the near future, the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) has issued official advice to help people stay safe. Run, hide and tell are the easy-to-remember key points of the campaign, though Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley also says that people who choose to act on instinct or confront their attackers head-on can't be criticised.

The clip above essentially describes a particularly tense game of hide-and-seek, with the NPCC stressing the importance of making it out alive, and then thinking about others. It adds that police officers may treat innocent parties ‘firmly’, as they won’t immediately be able to distinguish attackers from civilians. As long as you follow their instructions, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. [BBC]
