Extra Terror Airport Checks 'Not A Blip' - Clegg

Thursday 3rd July 2014

Nick Clegg told LBC that the new extra terror checks at airports are likely to be around for a while after America warned of new threats of terrorism.

Security has been increased at UK airports after reports terror groups are trying to develop bombs that can get through current measures.

The Deputy Prime Minister told Call Clegg we shouldn't be unduly panicked but it's now the world we live in.

Nick Clegg's told LBC terrorists are constantly evolving the ways they want to attack us. He said: "There are groups constantly looking for ways to do us harm and we need to constantly look at new ways to keep us safe.

"We don't think the majority of travellers going on holiday won't be disrupted. There will be another layer for some travellers on some flights.

"I don't think people should be panicked or concerned but we shouldn't assume this is a one off thing. I don't want people to think this is a blip for a week."
