LONDON - Britain on Monday reduced its international terrorism threat level from severe to substantial, UK Interior Minster Theresa May said.

Substantial is the third highest level, meaning a terrorist attack is a strong possibility and might well occur without further warning.

"The change in the threat level to substantial does not mean the overall threat has gone away - there remains a real and serious threat against the United Kingdom and I would ask the public to remain vigilant," she said in a statement.
