Australian police to ramp up security at major events

SECURITY is being ramped up in Australia in the wake of the Paris attacks, as our terrorist alert level remains on high.

Victoria Police will beef up the number of police at the UFC fight at Etihad Stadium on Sunday and at public transport hubs such as Southern Cross Station.

NSW Police said a high security alert meant a terrorist attack was likely, but they had not received any information suggesting there was an immediate threat to Australia.
