Bahrain: Foreign Office advises against travel

NEWS STORY
19/02/2011

As Formula One continues its policy of 'wait and see' with regards the Bahrain Grand Prix, the Foreign Office has advised British citizens not to travel to the country unless it is absolutely essential.

In a bulletin issued in the early hours of Saturday 19, the Foreign Office warns: "Following violence over recent days, and most recently on the evening of 18 February, we advise British nationals to avoid all but essential travel to Bahrain.

"We also advise British nationals currently in Bahrain to monitor the media, to limit travel around the island to essential journeys only, and not to go out when demonstrations are taking place. If travelling within Bahrain, British nationals should maintain a high level of security awareness, particularly in public places and on major highways, and avoid large crowds and demonstrations.

"The airport remains open and transiting through the airport is unaffected by this advice."
