All our staff and volunteers work hard to help people stay safe whilst they are in the Cathedral. If you see any suspicious behaviour that causes alarm please make sure you report it to a Duty Verger or another member of staff.  All visitors are asked to keep their luggage and bags with them at all times. We reserve the right to undertake random searches if required. The government has published advice about what to do in the event of a terror attack. See the Run/Hide/Tell leaflet and film. 

Lost children 
If children are lost during the course of a visit please report the matter to our Duty Verger. If you cannot find a Verger please report to the Welcome Desk or the Shop. For more information on our safeguarding work click here

First aid 
The Cathedral has two AED de-fibrillators for use in a first aid emergency. Ask the Duty Verger, shop or cafe staff if you need help.
