Keep alert and not alarmed says Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer
People living in Devon and Cornwall are being urged by police to remain alert and vigilant following the attack in Manchester.
Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said “The tragic events in Manchester are a timely reminder of the need to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity you may see.
“Although we have no information to suggest any specific risk to Devon, Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, I would ask the public to keep alert and not alarmed, and to support us in keeping our region safe.
“If anyone sees anything suspicious relating to terrorism, they can report this to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789321.
“The impact of last night’s events will be felt for some time and our condolences go to the families and friends of those who have died as well as those who have been injured as a result of the attack.
“Devon and Cornwall Police officers and staff are always aware of the dangers of such attacks, they remain thankfully rare."
