The UK government has updated its travel advisory for France on its Foreign and Commonwealth Office website to reflect the threat of an indiscriminate terrorist attack in the country.

In its summary of France Foreign Office officials say: “There is a high threat from terrorism. Attacks could be indiscriminate.”

“Due to ongoing threats to France by Islamist groups and recent French military intervention against Isis, the French government has warned the public to be extra vigilant and reinforced its own domestic and overseas security measures,” reads the Foreign Office website.

It also mentions previous attacks in France, attributed to Islamist extremists including Mohamed Merah’s shooting spree in Toulouse and Montauban in March 2012 and a knife attack on a soldier at La Defense business district near Paris.
