Extra officers to 'reassure the community'

Since Saturday we have had extra officers in the area to assist with the HMIT investigation and to support and reassure the community through what we realise is a worrying time for them.

No-one expects this kind of incident to happen in their community and we understand that it has left many people with unanswered questions and that people may have been left unsettled by this act of violence."

– Chief Inspector Craig Dibdin, Hampshire Police
