London Police Review sk© Security SAVER SALE at Upcoming Public Events After Manchester Attack

29 May, 2017 Britain is under heightened security after Monday’s deadly bomb attack at an Ariana Grande[1] concert in Manchester. Multiple major public events are due to go ahead this weekend, including the FA Cup final[2], with markedly increased security.

“I hope that the people of Greater Manchester will gain reassurance from this change”. A Uefa statement said there was “currently no specific intelligence” to suggest Wednesday’s game could be a target for further attacks. Manchester itself is scheduled to host three days of sport this weekend, starting on Friday with the Great CityGames and ending with Sunday’s Great Manchester Run, although that must be in some doubt now.

“Contrary to what has been said in some media outlets, the “fan zones” and festival will take place as planned under strict security measures, measures which have been developed over months in cooperation with the Football Association of Wales and the local authorities”. Golf officials were meeting security experts ahead of this week’s flagship European PGA Championship event at Wentworth, southwest of London, on Thursday. “It was before last night and it remains so”.

London’s Metropolitan Police has also seen a contraction over that time but at a slower rate. At a hectic time for sport in Britain, next week sees the start of cricket’s Champions Trophy tournament involving the world’s top 8 one-day worldwide sides, with matches in London, Birmingham and Cardiff. “We will not quit or operate in fear”.

A minute’s silence will be held in tribute to the victims as will be the case at the first one-day worldwide between England and South Africa at Headingley, Leeds, and both sets of players will wear black armbands. Morgan says the team have full confidence in the safety measures in place. We strongly advise that all supporters arrive at the stadium no later than 1 hour prior kick-off to be inside for the start of the match and we encourage spectators to not bring any bags or unnecessary items with them.

For police in the northern English city, her assurance given in London on Tuesday offered some hope and comfort after years of cost-saving cutbacks – many of them launched by May in 2012 when she was interior minister. “You always cheered me up when I was upset and have always been there for me”. Several of the raids have taken place in the south of Manchester, a part of the city that’s home to more than a dozen people suspected or convicted of terror offences in recent years.

Manchester City players – including captain Vincent Kompany, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, forward Leroy Sane and defender Pablo Zabaleta – also tweeted[3] their support for those affected.

Speaking at a press conference at the force’s headquarters in Bridgend, assistant chief constable Richard Lewis said: “For the whole period our planning and preparation has been ongoing, the threat level across the United Kingdom has remained at severe and all our security plans reflect this threat”.

Olympic and world 100m champion Usain Bolt tweeted: “Thoughts & prayers goes out to people of Manchester and all those who are affected”.
