Thursday will bring 'massive police operation' in London

Police in London are taking no chances today and will today deploy More than 6,000 officers, many armed to the streets of London.

It is two weeks today since the failed 21 July bombings and four since the 7 July attacks in which 56 people died. And quit rightly the Police are not willing to take chances today and will go all out to cover as much of the transport system as possible .

The Met has revelaed that extra officers have been brought in from outside the capital and retired officers have been persuaded to return to help with the anti-terror work.

Police have said that a high-visibility presence will aim to make people feel safer while undercover officers mingle with commuters on Tubes and buses trying to spot bombers.

It should be noted that no specific warning of any attack has been issued by the police at this time .

there must be some creditable threat to illicit this response. Good on them, I am always appreciative when I see pro-active action.
