More information from raid in Chester

Cheshire Police and Counter Terrorism Policing North West have in the early hours Monday, 29th May they searched an address in Chester.

Monday's search was part of the on-going investigation following the attack at Manchester Arena on Monday, 22nd May. Officers would like to reassure local communities that there is currently no direct threat to the public of Cheshire and there are extra officers on the streets to provide visible reassurance.

This morning’s activity will understandably cause concern within the local community and I want to reassure residents that as part of the on-going investigation there will be an increased police presence in the area.

Officers will be visible in Chester over the next few days providing reassurance and if any members of the community have any concerns then I would encourage you to speak to local officers.

We will continue to work closely with our communities by carrying out patrols over the coming weeks and addressing any concerns they may have.

– Detective Superintendent Aaron Duggan, Head of Crime at Cheshire Constabulary
