Message from Lambeth Borough Commander

The below is a public release from the Lambeth Borough Commander regarding the Manchester terror attack, and provides details of the Lambeth Police response:

Topic: Manchester attack

Details of incident

Following the horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, in which 22 people were killed and tens of others injured, the Met has increased the number of officers on duty across the capital.

While all policing operations in London are currently planned to the backdrop of a severe threat level from terrorism, officers from our event planning teams and protective security experts are now reviewing in detail all the plans for upcoming events.

This includes smaller events which may not have had a police presence now seeing a greater focus, an increase of armed and unarmed officers on highly visible reassurance patrols around key locations and crowded places and work with event organisers.

The Met is reaching out to event organisers through our licensing officers to ensure that they are given the latest protective security advice to keep their music events as safe as can be. Using our well-established local and London-wide briefing systems, we are ensuring that refreshed advice is given to all those venues hosting events.

A full review of the security and policing operations for the weekend’s sporting events – the culmination of the football and rugby seasons at Wembley and Twickenham – is also underway. This will include the deployment of extra armed officers.

The Met will continue to do everything possible to protect London, not just through the use of armed officers, but also through the ongoing work by specialist detectives in the Counter Terrorism Command, working with partner agencies and gathering community intelligence.

Across the city and in Lambeth, local officers are also out engaging with a range of communities. Safer Schools officers are working closely with their schools to make sure that young people understand what the Met is doing to protect the capital.

Please do contact my staff office or me if you have any questions or wish to discuss any further aspect of this incident with me.

 

Regards,

Richard Wood

Chief Superintendent

Borough Commander – Lambeth “LX”

 

Please be vigilant: members of the public should always remain alert to the danger of terrorism and report any suspicious activity to the police on 999 or the anti-terrorist hotline: 0800 789 321.
