May reduces UK terror threat from critical to severe

Prime Minister Theresa May Saturday reduced the terrorist threat level in the UK from critical to severe – meaning an attack is highly likely but not immediately expected. Hundreds of soldiers deployed to support the police since the Manchester Arena attack claimed 22 lives will be stood down on Monday night. Earlier on Saturday, police evacuated an area of Moss Side in Manchester, in a search linked to Monday's bomb attack, as a precautionary measure to "ensure everyone's safety".
