Watchdogs: Watchdog team investigates whether UK government misled Parliament over the Euro 2016 terror attacks

Watchdogs on Wednesday said the government failed to inform Parliament it was aware of the “serious” risks posed by the UK’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest in France, despite assurances to the contrary by the Prime Minister and the Home Secretary.

“The Government has been unable to provide evidence to Parliament that it had been informed of the serious risks posed to the public,” said the watchdog’s report into the Eurostar train crash, published by the Independent.

“Parliamentarians should be made aware of this risk and it should be fully investigated.” 

The Independent also reports the UK has been fined $1.3 million (£1.1 million) by the EU over its failure to inform parliament that it was at risk of a terror attack in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.
