Anyone know anything about the massive quantity of police (uniformed, under cover cars, riot van full, CCTV unit and an ambulance or two as well) at great suffolk street, pocock street and across Blackfriars road yesterday?
Must have been about 5, and still there at 6 when they seemed to be closing off great suffolk street just north of the junction with Webber street.
Nelson Square last night, heard a loud bang at around 00:45 looked outside and saw 4 police riot vans (not just the normal van) and around 4-5 undercover cars. An army of probably 40 riot police piled out of the block opposite without anyone in custody.
It seemed a bit heavy handed for the usual drug dealers etc. I doubt all of them could even fit in a single premises!
So thatís what the noise was! I live in the said block and was woken around 12.30 by what I thought sounded like lots of people running down the stairwell.
I didnít dare venture out to look but couldnít see anything from my balcony. Iíve asked a few of the neighbours today, with most saying they didnít hear or see anything so I would be grateful if anyone could enlighten me. Many thanks in advance.
