Avon & Somerset Police say they are getting ready to help keep next weeks NATO summit in Wales a safe one.

The summit, at the Celtic Manor resort, is on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th September. Officers from Avon & Somerset have been working closely with Gwent Police and South Wales Police to support them in delivering a peaceful and crime-free summit.

They are warning us to expect to see more police around in Bristol, Bath and the surrounding area over the next few days because of it. Officers have been drafted in from other parts of the country to help out and make sure that policing here is not affected.

Superintendent Kevin Instance says:

"We've been working hard to support our Welsh colleagues in delivering a safe NATO summit, and to make sure at the same time that policing on our own streets remains unaffected. There will be police officers from across the country in our area so people shouldn't be surprised or worried if they see officers in the area with different caps and badges."
