The following statement regarding the Brussels incidents has been issued by GMP, specifically with regard to the Greater Manchester area:
Assistant Chief Constable John O’Hare said: “First and foremost, our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the incidents in Brussels today.
There is no specific threat in Greater Manchester following the events this morning but we remain at a threat level of severe.
We are working closely with Manchester Airport to ensure that the appropriate response is in place and we have increased our patrols to support this.
We will continue to review the situation and maintain our increased patrols in crowded areas, iconic locations and transport hubs.
The events today in Brussels reinforce the need for us all to remain vigilant and report any concerns whilst continuing with normal daily life.”
