The Government has released a chilling instructional video for British holidaymakers caught in a terrorist attack.

The four-minute video centres around a “Run, Hide, Tell” message and demonstrates how tourists should react as their hotel comes under fire from gunmen storming the building.

It echoes an attack in Tunisia when 38 people, including 24-year-old Scott Chalkley of Chaddesden, were killed by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui on a beach near Sousse.

The “Run, Hide, Tell” advice states that in a terror attack the first thing people should do is “Run” to a place of safety if there is a safe route, leave belongings behind, and insist other people come with them.

But if there is nowhere to go, the next step is to “Hide”.

Tourists should find somewhere with a physical barrier between them and the attacker, such as a door, and barricade themselves in using things such as furniture. They should also turn their phones to silent and deactivate the vibrate function.

Then when it is safe to do so, tourists should “Tell” the authorities by calling the local emergency number. In EU countries it is 112 but tourists should find out the right number before arriving in their holiday destination.
