EDINBURGH is “wide open” to the threat of a Barcelona-style terror attack, a former British Army officer has warned.

The Scottish capital is vulnerable to the sort of “low tech” terrorism which has seen cars, vans and trucks used by jihadis to mow down members of the public across Europe in recent months, said Stuart Crawford, writing for think tank Think Scotland.

In a chilling warning, Mr Crawford called for the public to help the police in spotting potential terror threats and urged everyone to be aware during the Edinburgh Festival, just days after 15 people were killed in the Barcelona terror attack.

He wrote in a blog post for the think tank entitled ‘Barcelona attacks – Edinburgh Next?’: “Another week, another terrorist outrage in a European city. This time Barcelona (and nearby Cambrils) joined Nice, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm and London (three times) in the list of recent targets for ISIS’ new terrorism strategy.

“Edinburgh next? Well, I hope not – I hope not ever. But it’s not beyond the bounds of possibility. We all need to take responsibility for our own, our fellow citizens, and our visitors’ safety and welfare. Be nosy, be questioning, and alert the police to anything even mildly suspicious.”
