‘EXISTING LANGUAGE’: The UK Government told the Olive Press it has not issued a fresh warning over Spain’s terror threat

THE UK Government has denied issuing a fresh warning over a supposed increase in Spain’s terror threat level.

It comes after English newspapers in Spain said today that the British government had issued a new alert this week.

SOURCE: The Foreign & Commonwealth Office said there was ‘no sudden increase’ in a terror threat

But a Foreign & Commonwealth Office spokesperson told the Olive Press today: “These articles come via a Daily Star article.

“The article was simply founded on existing language which can all be found in our travel advice, and has been the case for some time.

“There’s no sudden increase on our part.

Spain, meanwhile, is believed to have ramped up security for the summer season, as it has done for several years now.

“As for the UK’s advice to tourists, this is extensively supplied throughout our individual travel advice pages.”

NO UPDATE: The Government’s last travel advice update concerned the Champions League final in Madrid

According to respected Spanish national La Razon, based in Madrid, there will be 40,000 additional troops deployed across the country focusing specifically on anti-terror operations.

The last update to the UK Government’s travel advice for Brits heading to Spain, however, was on June 3.

This was an update that concerned information related to the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid on June 1.

This advice remains unchanged.
