Westfield Stratford City has said there is no imminent threat of a terrorist attack after Islamist militants urged followers to target the shopping centre.
In a video released over the weekend, Somalia-based terror group al-Shabaab called for a repeat of its attack on Kenya’s Westgate Shopping Centre which resulted in 63 deaths and more than 100 injuries.
The video issued GPS co-ordinates for the Westfield centres in Stratford and Shepherds Bush and also mentioned Oxford Street.
The Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command said it was “assessing the content”.
A spokeswoman for Westfield Corporation said: “There is no evidence of an imminent threat to our shopping centres but as always Westfield Corporation will take every available step to keep our shopping centres safe for staff, retailers and customers.
“Westfield Corporation’s policy is to not publicly discuss security procedures, however our heads of security in the US and UK continue to coordinate their activities with police and government agencies.
“As usual significant resources continue to be devoted to security arrangements in our shopping centres and they continue to operate as normal.”
The hour-long footage shows a masked man in military gear urging attacks on “Jewish-owned” shopping centres in the US, Canada and France.
