Anti-terrorism lesson for Canary Wharf commuters
A major police presence on Wednesday was used to teach Canary Wharf commuters about a new anti-terrorism initiative.
The Tower Hamlets force was boosted by 150 extra police on the ground for the day-long London-wide Operation Big Wing, which attempted to disrupt low level crime.
The team paid an early morning visit to the estate.
Operations Superintendent Shaun De Souza Brady said: "If you think something is suspicious or looks strange don't feel you can't ring.
"Ring and let us decide if it's strange. It could be a person taking photos of a building, someone loitering, or an unusual car parked somewhere."
The borough's force, boosted by those who usually took desk jobs instead joining the frontline, also talked to commuters about keeping their belongings safe.
Meanwhile, five arrests for offences such as theft, robbery and assault were made across the borough during early morning raids.
Greenwich saw 27 arrests for offences including theft, possession of drugs, robbery, handling stolen goods and possession of an offensive weapon.
Overall, across the capital, there was 600 arrest throughout the day.
