Terrorist Attacks – Met Police Advice

In the light of the shocking attacks in Brussels on Tuesday 22 March 2016, Mak Chishty, Commander – Community Engagement of the Metropolitan Police has issued the following message:
“Officers and uniformed police staff will be out and about as part of London’s community life, they have all been briefed and would welcome members of the community approaching them and will do their best to help reassure them. If any member of the community spots anything unusual within their community that they do not feel happy about then please report this to police using the 101 number or if it’s urgent 999. You can also call the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
It is with regret, but something that we have come to realise through experience, that hate crime can increase and I would ask that any incident of hate or hate crime is immediately reported and assure you that it will receive a fast response and be dealt with by specialist officers.
I would also like to this opportunity to bring our advice to your notice on the steps to take to keep safe in the event of a firearms or weapons attack. This can be found on the National Police Chiefs Council website:
