NEWS STORY : Army Stands Down as Armed Police Officers in London Return to Work


Armed police officers have returned to work in London amidst the Government’s admission that the army might have been required to support the Met Police. 300 armed officers had turned in their permits over the last week following the decision to charge an officer with the murder of Chris Kaba. The Met Police said in a statement:

“As of lunchtime on Monday, the number of officers who had returned to armed duties was sufficient for us to no longer require external assistance to meet our counterterrorism responsibilities.”
