BBPA statement on London terror attack


Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive, BBPA, comments:

“This was an appalling attack on innocent people as they enjoyed their Saturday night in one of the busiest parts of London. We do urge pubs to be vigilant against the threat of terrorism, and there were many heroic actions from bar and restaurant staff on Saturday.

“As more details become clear, pubs should monitor advice from the police, brief staff, and have terrorism as part of their risk assessment of the premises. There is guidance on this on our website, ‘Managing Safety in Pubs & Bars’.

“Also, given the degree to which this attack was focused on hospitality venues, we will be seeking to work with the Metropolitan police and other partners to ensure that the guidance available for pubs bars and restaurants, and our customers, is as effective as it can possibly be, in the face of these evolving threats.”
