whats the point of telling people on holiday to catch the next flight back? if its a london based problem i'm sure there would be enough officers available quicker from around the UK than hoping that they can get their way back from a 12 hour flight?
and lets just say that letting everyone know we need our plod back within x days to meet a terrorist threat will tell them to take a break and perhaps make it a few weeks away
The Metropolitan police has been forced to quash rumours of an imminent terror attack on London after a hoax message was distributed.
The text, which was widely shared on social media, warned that police were preparing for a major attack on the Underground this week.
The message read: "They think there's a terror threat and that it will happen on the tubes tomorrow around the west end area. So don't go travelling on tubes!! It's better to be safe than sorry. Please share."
