Met Police statement on Olympic security concerns

The Metropolitan Police is working with the organisers of the Olympic Games as well as protest groups to ensure that we facilitate lawful protest.

We will work with groups which wish to protest so their points can be made but without impacting on the running of the games.

We are confident that the plans we have in place will enable the delivery of a safe and secure Olympic Games.
