Peace shat­tered by armed re­sponse

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

FOL­LOW­ING the Cavendish Road evac­u­a­tion, Sun­bury res­i­dents ex­pressed their shock. Deb­o­rah Rid­dle said: “My son came and said to me that there was lots of po­lice out­side, so I went up­stairs and looked out the win­dows and there was loads of armed po­lice walk­ing up the road.

“They were knock­ing on doors. They said that we had to evac­u­ate, they didn’t know for how long and they gave us no rea­son.

“You wouldn’t ex­pect it around here. It’s a very quiet road. It’s friendly.”

Af­ter vis­it­ing res­i­dents, the Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner for Sur­rey, David Munro, praised the ‘sto­icism and com­mu­nity spirit’ of the peo­ple of Sun­bury.
