Security level: 3
The overall assessment of threats in the United Kingdom is Medium. The primary security concern for travelers to the UK is crime. Most incidents affecting visitors involve opportunistic crime such as pickpocketing and purse snatching. Street demonstrations related to political, social an economic developments occur regularly in larger cities. Violence has erupted in the past, but most of these actions occur without incident, apart from traffic disruptions. Labor strikes in the public and private sectors also occur very frequently throughout the country and may affect services used by travelers.
