As per reports, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that around 5,000 soldiers are being deployed on streets to help police as further attacks may take place following the Manchester concert bombing.
The threat has been raised to critical from severe.
Police are suspecting the British-born bomber Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old of Libyan descent, was part of the attack, and the bomb-maker may still be at large.
May also announced that the police officers will be replaced by the troops at set-piece events which will include sports venues as well as concerts. Security will also be taken to a higher step at major public events, railway stations and airports.
In connection with the attack, a man was detained in Manchester.
