Docks and ports around the Humber estuary are the focus of security activity as part of National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week.

Train stations and other transport hubs across East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire are also heavily involved.

National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week was launched yesterday and will run until November 30, raising awareness of threats among the general public, business and transport community, while advising on how to combat threats.

Projects Kraken and Pegasus will be targeting ports and airports, uniting the police, the National Crime Agency and the UK Border Force to provide advice on fighting terrorism.

Each day focuses on a different theme such as crowded places, transport hubs, preventing violent extremism, terrorist financing and the tools terrorists need to operate.

The overall aim of the week-long campaign is to show people how their vigilance can make a difference to combating terrorism.
