Northumbria Police is reinforcing its commitment to be able to respond to a major terrorist incident.
Over the past few months the force has taken part in a number of exercises, along with partner agencies, to test its capability to respond to a major incident.
Extensive work has already been carried out by Northumbria Police, which includes a significant increase in the numbers of highly trained firearms officers who patrol across the force area from Sunderland & South Tyneside, Newcastle & Gateshead and North Tyneside & Northumberland.
The force will continue to work with its partners to build and strengthen its ability even further.
