Two alleged British Islamic State fighters have threatened terror attacks on UK soil in a video released in celebration of this week’s horrific Brussels attacks.

The mask-clad men speak with ‘London accents’ in the video in which they laugh at the events that unfolded in Belgium just two days ago. The footage was then posted to their Instagram account.

Security experts believe that the men in the footage are ISIS fighters based in Syria, where they ‘used an internet cafe to film their threats’.

The alleged footage comes in the midst of high security levels in the UK after Theresa May stated that a terror attack occurring on British soil is currently ‘highly likely’.
