British Prime Minister David Cameron has warned an attack on Britain is “highly likely”, and has committed more resources for intelligence and surveillance agencies following last week’s events in Paris.

The Prime Minister said the scale of the atrocity in France revealed “a greater ambition for mass-casualty attacks” on the wider West.

In response, there has been a visible increase in police on the streets of London, as well as at UK port and air borders.

The government is adding an extra 1,900 security and intelligence staff and is to double funds for aviation security. It’ll be a 15% increase for MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, and the biggest rise in British security spending since the 7/7 London bombings in 2005.

The focus on the security services comes a week after the Investigatory Powers Bill was proposed by the Home Secretary Theresa May.

Nicknamed the Snoopers’ Charter, the bill would authorize the mass collection of personal data, and require telecommunications companies to store records of websites visited by every citizen for 12 months.
