Anti-terrorism patrols increased in Bromley

Counter-terrorism patrols are to be stepped up this week in Bromley.

Borough Commander Steph Roberts insisted the threat hasn’t increased but said the public has a role they play in protecting themselves.

Operation Penna runs until December 7 and includes high visibility patrols around Bromley’s town centres and transport hubs, along with briefings to businesses explaining the current threat from terrorism and what they can do to prevent it.

Ms Roberts said: “Although the threat has not increased, it remains real and serious.

“We encourage the residents to remain vigilant and alert and to report anything suspicious to police.”

Anyone with information about unusual activity can contact the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321 or in the event of an emergency dial 999.
