Travel to conflict zones

The threat from terrorism in the UK, related to conflicts abroad, is of great concern. So too is the number of people being radicalised or drawn into terrorist-related activities at home and abroad.

Communities and families are asked to contact police about anyone they feel may be vulnerable.

Call the police on 101 if you:

  • are concerned about someone travelling to, or returning from, a conflict zone
  • are worried about someone showing signs of being radicalised
  • would like support or advice on radicalisation or terrorist-related activities

Trust your instincts and help prevent tragedies.

Communities defeat terrorism
