Statement following London attack

Communities across our Force area are being urged to remain calm but alert following terror attacks in London last night [Saturday 3 June].

Assistant Chief Constable Sharon Taylor said: “As details emerge from this Metropolitan-led investigation, our thoughts are with all those affected from these incidents and to all our colleagues in the emergency services who bravely responded.

“We continue to keep all policing under review to ensure the appropriate security is in place, however, I would like to reassure the public that there is no specific intelligence or information that suggests a risk to Devon, Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly.

“I would urge people to keep alert but not alarmed and if anyone sees anything suspicious relating to terrorism, they can report this to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or 999 in an emergency.

“Those who are concerned about loved ones can contact the Casualty Bureau on 0800 0961 233.”

ACC Taylor is chairing a meeting with Dorset Police at 12pm today [Sunday 4 June] and a further message will be released after that meeting.
