Gibraltar assesses terror threat

IN light of the attacks on Paris, Governor Alison MacMillan chaired a meeting with the caretaker Chief Minister, Commander of British Forces in Gibraltar and Commissioner of the Royal Gibraltar Police to review security on Saturday November 14.

It is reported that no significant change to the threat level would be made and although there was a slight increase in security at the border that afternoon with additional police to be seen and random checks of cars entering, passports of drivers of non-Gibraltar registered cars were only given a cursory glance.

There was a two minute silence at midday on November 16 with the tolling of the Cathedral bells and Pierre Fayaud, the French Consul in Gibraltar, joined the Governor, caretaker Chief Minister military representatives and civil servants to show solidarity with the French people.
