from BBC...

An independent report into anti-terror raids across north-west England is expected to criticise the police.

It is likely to say Greater Manchester Police should have consulted specialist lawyers before the operation in April

Now I’m not sure what to make of this... part of me feels sorry for the police in this instance. If the police had waited and an attack happened then I’m sure there would be a report criticising the police for having too much red tape!!

However, if this is true...

It is thought his report concludes there was enough evidence to justify arresting some of the men, but it criticises police for failing to obtain prior advice from counter-terrorism specialists at the Crown Prosecution Service.

Does this show a lack of communication which could result in the destruction of another departments investigation.

For example... MI5 could have been watching these guys for months in the hope of catching bigger players... then the met come storming in and ruin everything!
