Londoners have been urged to be “vigilant” on the Underground as the country begins military action against Islamic State militants in Iraq.
London Mayor Boris Johnson told commuters to be cautious on London’s transport network, saying: “I would ask all Londoners to continue to do as they always do and remain vigilant, report anything suspicious to the authorities,” the Evening Standard reported.
But no threat has been made against London and there is “no intelligence to suggest an attack is planned”, sources told the Evening Standard.
A spokesperson for TfL told The Independent “the situation for London has not changed.”
“We continue to work closely with Government, the Mayor’s Office and security services colleagues and have been advised that the security measures we already have in place do not need to change at this time.
“We will continue to monitor the situation.”
