Military test for Olympics security

RAF Typhoon jets have arrived at an air base in London in preparation for the Olympic Games as military chiefs said they were ready to react to a “9/11-type attack”.
The four high-speed jets landed at RAF Northolt in west London ahead of a major military exercise to test security for London 2012. It is the first time fighter aircraft have been stationed at the base since the Second World War.
The Typhoons will take part in Exercise Olympic Guardian, a nine-day training operation over the skies of the capital and the home counties that runs from until May 10.
Air Vice-Marshal Stuart Atha, air component commander for Olympics air security, said: “What we will have is a plan that has many levels to it which will allow us to deal at one end – which is that 9/11-type attack – perhaps down to the lower and the slower type of threat that we may face.
“There is no specific threat and all we are doing is having in place what we would describe as prudent and appropriate measures in place, in order that we could react if required in a timely and appropriate fashion.”
Air Vice-Marshal Atha said he hoped the exercise would have “an effect on the mind” of any potential attackers, and added: “I would hope when they see how we are preparing they might be deterred from making any threats to the Games.”
The RAF warned that people in south-east England will notice an increase in air activity at certain times, in particular this weekend.
Other aircraft involved in the exercise include Royal Navy Sea King helicopters temporarily based at RAF Northolt, RAF Puma helicopters based at a Territorial Army centre in Ilford, east London, and Army and Royal Navy Lynx helicopters on HMS Ocean in the Thames.
Defence Secretary Phillip Hammond said: “Whilst there is no specific threat to the Games, we have to be ready to assist in delivering a safe and secure Olympics for all to enjoy.
“The fact that our state-of-the-art Typhoons will be stationed at RAF Northolt underlines the commitment of the Ministry of Defence and our armed forces to keeping the public safe at a time when the world will be watching us.”

London’s most dangerous streets revealed

Posted in multicultural britain with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2012 by britishloyalist

STREETS in the West End are the most dangerous in the capital, while one neighbourhood in Bromley, south-east London, did not have a single robbery in a year.

New ward-by-ward police data show more than 20,000 crimes were committed in the West End in the 12 months to April.

The central London shopping and theatre district was also the scene of 247 street robberies – the fourth most in 625 wards.

It was only topped by three of the capital’s poorest areas. Stratford and New Town in Newham, east London, had 300 muggings, followed by East Walworth (266) and Camberwell Green (263), both in Southwark in the south of the city.
After the West End, overall crime was highest in other central London areas popular with visitors: St James’s (15,283 offences in total); Holborn and Covent Garden (6,289); Bloomsbury (4,816) and Camden Town with Primrose Hill (4,612).

Safe suburbs

The safest areas in the capital tended to be leafy, quiet suburbs towards the edge of the capital. In Bromley, the Darwin ward saw no street robberies at all, followed by nearby Shortlands with just three muggings. The total number of offences in both neighbourhoods averaged less than one a day.

Kingston upon Thames also had some of the safest neighbourhoods in London, with four wards among the lowest ten for both muggings and overall crime. Old Malden in the south-west London borough tallied the least offences in the whole of London: only 326 in a year.
Other safe suburbs were Sutton South and Lower Morden, both in south London.

Croydon’s Fairfield, however, were among the ten most dangerous with 4,135 crimes and 231 muggings.

Unsurprisingly, areas notorious for their run-down council estates also made the top ten for street robberies. Tottenham Green in north London, where a police officer was killed in riots on the Broadwater Farm estate in 1985, came ninth with 222 muggings.
Stonebridge in Brent, north-west London, was in tenth place with 209 robberies. It was the scene of a triple family murder over a drug row on the Stonebridge estate last year, as well as the double murder of seven-year-old Toni-Ann Byfield and her drug dealer dad in 2003.

Police said they were carrying out “a raft of initiatives and targeted operations” to cut down on street crime. In the 12 months to April, muggings rose by 16%, but the increase rate has since declined by 2%, a spokesman said.
