Met Police review security after Australia Terror cop plot

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed they are reviewing the security arrangements within the UK following terror arrests within Australia.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, Specialist Operations has said  “Following counter terrorism arrests in Australia this weekend and allegations of attack planning against Anzac Day commemorations and police officers in Australia, we are reviewing security plans at related events in the UK.

“We already have protective security plans in place for major Anzac events in the UK but as a sensible precaution all forces have been asked to review security arrangements at related events to ensure they are safe and secure for the public and officers.

“While there is no information to suggest a specific threat to related events in the UK – and the current UK threat level remains unchanged – the public should remain vigilant.

“If the public are concerned or wish to report anything suspicious they can call the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency call 999.”
