14 people have been arrested in connection with a series of shootings in the Austrian capital Vienna that left four people dead.

22 others were injured when a gunman, described as an Islamist terrorist by the authorities, fired into crowds of people at six different locations.

In the UK the terror threat level has been raised from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’ which means an attack is thought to be highly likely.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Jenny Hill in Vienna and security correspondent Frank Gardner.
