messagePolice in riot gear?
Posted by Alan Medic February 10, 05:07PM

I think I just saw about 20 police in riot gear marching at speed past the Great Exhibition pub. Was I hallucinating?

Blimey! The pub does fancy dress events but I donít think this is one of them!

Half of them had those transparent shields. Weird.

They've read the Brexit thread, no deal prepping...

Maybe something to do with the murder in ED last night.

I really needed something to make me laugh and this done the job, thank you!

About 15 or 20 years ago I was confronted by a dozen police in full riot gear and carrying submachine guns in Underhill Road by the cemetery - they were filming The Bill, it transpired, and were 'resting up' in Underhill before running into shot in Langton Rise. Gave me quite a turn.

Maybe the dead are rising in Camberwell Old Cemetery. Just remember, remove the head or destroy the brain.

I drove past them seemingly raiding a property on Lordship Lane by the intersection with Crystal Palace Road. One police officer had a baby in arms, wrapped in a blanket, whilst about a dozen riot police were readying themselves to re-enter the property.

Thought I was in an episode of Luther..

I've experienced a group of armed police a couple of times, once actors filming for the dark comedy Babylon, and the other time doing a Counter-terrorism exercise. You can tell for both as there will always be a mobile canteen.

I had a group of plods running at me once at Millwall, I was going to give myself up for parking a motorbike on the grass when I realised that they were running to sort out some proper bother outside the Den.

They may have been preparing to assist the BBC in entering a house as part of a TV license inspection.
