An attack on the UK is highly likely and could occur without warning at any time following the death of Osama bin Laden, Britain's most senior police officer has warned.
Sir Paul Stephenson said it was vital that communities remained vigilant and urged members of the public to "trust their instincts" and report "any suspicious behaviour which may be terrorist-related".
"Vigilance should be our watchword," the Metropolitan Police commissioner added.
In his first speech since returning to work after surgery, Sir Paul said the "severe" threat from international terrorism was "not a bureaucratic description, but rather a factual assessment of the reality of the threat we face".
"To be blunt it means that an attack is highly likely and could occur without warning at any time.
"As Government, the police and the security service assess the impact and consequences of the death of Osama bin Laden, it is clear that there can be no let up in our vigilance."
Sir Paul said: "Osama bin Laden led an organisation which is responsible for the injury and death of thousands of people worldwide in the name of an extreme and perverted ideology, committed to the use of terror and murder to achieve their aims.
"However, one man's death does not mark the end of an ideology and we must remain alert to the continuing threat from al Qaida, its affiliates and those acting alone.
"The police and security services will continue to work locally, nationally and with our international partners to do everything possible to counter the terrorist threat.
"But we cannot do this alone, we need the help of the public to protect the country from the threat of terrorism."
