Police prepare terror attack warning for restaurants and cinemas - TriWooOx - 08-04-2008 12:22 PM
Quote:The Daily Telegraph has learned that the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, a specialist police unit, is drawing up guidance for hospitality and entertainment sites as part of a drive to prepare for terrorist attacks on crowded public places.
Big hotels will also be covered by the new "protective security guidance" to prepare for attacks including car bombs and suicide bombs.
Owners and managers of hospitality and entertainment firms will be told to assess their businesses' likely vulnerabilities to attack and prepare contingency plans for staff in the event of an attack.
The police-led security office will this month start running counter-terrorism training exercises for businesses in the "night-time economy"
Known as ARGUS courses, the exercises will present staff and managers in restaurants, cinemas, theatres and hotels with a simulated terrorist attack.
There is no specific intelligence pointing to attacks on town centres and the NCTSO says its guidance documents and training exercises are intended to prepare businesses for the worst.
"In the worst case scenario your staff and customers could be killed or injured, and your premises destroyed or damaged in a 'no warning', multiple and co-ordinated terrorist attack," the office has told business owners.
On its website, NCTSO gives a stark warning about the threat to Britain posed by international terrorism.
It says: "Attacks around the world have shown that terrorists will attack those targets they perceive as being attractive.
"Amongst the likely targets for international terrorists are locations with comparatively limited protective security measures which afford the potential for terrorists to cause mass casualties."
The Home Office said: "The National Counter Terrorism Security Office is due to publish shortly two new protective security guidance booklets for cinemas, theatres, restaurants and hotels."

Did they do the same with the IRA ?
I'm no so sure another false flag attack will fool so many people
