Cambs Patrols To Continue

Police officers will provide reassurance patrols in Cambridgeshire's communities for the rest of the week.

Detective Superintendent Karen Daber, who is in charge of the county's current policing operation, has told Heart extra officers will be on patrol across Cambridgeshire until next week.

Det Supt Daber said: "At the moment I'm planning and working through to Monday next week, because it's easier to scale down rather than scale up.

I am making sure I have sufficient resources to deploy through the weekend and into next week.

We are making sure that all available resources are on duty 24-7 to reassure the public, and to make sure we maintain the peace within the county."

Detective Superintendent Karen Daber talks to Heart's Tom Horn.

The news comes after what was described as an "isolated disturbance" in Cambridge last night.

Five people were arrested when between 30 and 40 young people gathered on Midsummer Common.

Two officers were hurt when some of the group threw items, including rubbish, at the police.

Heart has also been told 50 officers from the Cambridgeshire force are being sent to London tonight (Wednesday) to assist the Metropolitan Police operation currently ongoing in the capital.
