Brits warned to be vigilant following terror attack in Christchurch, New Zealand




The Foreign Office is warning British visitors to Christchurch, New Zealand, to be vigilant following mass shootings at two mosques in the city.

The terrorist attack has left 40 people dead and more than 20 seriously wounded.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as one of the country's 'darkest days'.

Police have arrested three men and one woman but warned more suspects may be at large.

The FCO updated its travel advice to say: "There has been a series of shootings in multiple locations in Christchurch. British Nationals in the area are advised to remain vigilant and follow the advice of local authorities.

"The British High Commission in Wellington is in contact with the New Zealand authorities and urgently seeking further information."

Anyone worried that a British national may have been affected should call the New Zealand Police hotline: (+64) 0800 115 019 from within New Zealand or register with the Restoring Family Links (RFL) website from overseas.
